Runs to: 8 June 2017

Open: Tues-Sat: 1-6pm 

 

A Rhythm Exposed (Routines: 5–6) represents the artist’s travel and conversations, combined with a curiosity into Buddhist doctrine concerning the three marks of existence. Focusing on the characteristics of Anicca, Dukkha and Anatta – Paliwords for impermanence, anxiety or suffering and non-self. They are used here as a reference to questions of ­­interest, concern and ritual. The three characteristics are common to all forms of existence.


This exhibition is part of the artist’s ongoing Routines series. In this series, which began in 2016, drawing is used as a key conceptual tool for the artist to examine obsessions in archiving, ownership and preservation and invites contemplation of the meticulous use of ink, light, and time on the aesthetic of the artworks. It is a continuous process of assembling and making, informed by reactions to the artist’s personal encounters.

Helen Mac Mahon is an Irish artist currently based in Dublin and exhibited in Ireland, Europe, the US and Asia. Her work takes the form of installations, sculpture and photography that explore light and perception.

“My practice is concerned primarily with the phenomena of light, movement, perception and space. The work strives to observe and reveal the ecosystem that exists between the viewer and these intangible elements that exist in a perpetual state of transformation. Changes occurring in each facet has a perceptible impact on others, revealing previously overlooked properties and characteristics.

My investigation of these elements is experimental in nature, and this exploratory process is as important as the finished piece, the unpredictability of the techniques often being key to discovery.  I use commonplace materials, such as light, glass, and lenses that have the potential to act in surprising ways, distorting and obscuring the very things it is their function to reveal. Each component acts as a catalyst, bringing to light unseen potential in the simplest of materials. Maintaining the integrity of the materials is also important, so the viewer is allowed to experience the everyday objects  in  new and often unexpected ways.”
