Helen Mac Mahon – ILLUSION on Tour, Petrosains Discovery Centre, Kuala Lumpur

39

Ormond member Helen Mac Mahon has work exhibited as part of ‘ILLUSION on Tour’, the Trinity College Science Gallery’s touring exhibition, at the Petrosains Discovery Centre in Kuala Lumpur. The show runs until December.

‘Petrosains, The Discovery Centre at Suria KLCC presents a new visiting exhibition – “Illusion”, an exhibition which offers an insight into the human mind through an exploration of the motivations and mechanisms of sensory deception. In simpler terms, “Illusion” will make you question what you see and will help you to investigate how perception underpins the way we see, feel, think and understand the world.

“Illusion” was developed by Science Gallery at Trinity College, Dublin and offers a diverse range of artworks or exhibits that deal with different types of illusions, from Significant Birds by Nye Parry, Cubes by Jennifer Townley and The Hurwitz Singularity by Jonty Hurwitz. All exhibits will deceive the senses, showing that what we perceive is often radically different from the reality of what our eyes observe or our ears hear.

This exhibition recently showcased in Charlotte, North Carolina and Petrosains is their first venue in Asia, which makes it a MUST-VISIT exhibition. It will be at Petrosains from August 2015 till December 2015’

Ormond Art Studios is an artist-led initiative in Dublin city and is a platform for emerging visual artists. It supports the development of arts practice through affordable studio provision, critical discourse and space for events, residencies and exhibitions. The physical studios consists of eight individual artist's spaces along with a separate area that serves as the Project Space. The Project Space offers scope for work on a larger scale, embodied practice and experimentation. It is in this space that feedback sessions, events and exhibitions happen. We believe that critical discourse is hugely beneficial to developing a professional arts practice and essential to a dynamic arts community. Ormond Art Studios encourages members to open up their practise to peer critique and facilitates lively feedback sessions, residencies, and information/skills sharing initiatives. We believe in collaboration and connect with other creative initiatives to develop a network of support for artist‐led endeavours in Dublin and beyond.
