Helen Mac Mahon | Project Residency Awardee | LACE Gallery

Exhibition, Ormond Studios 2018, Project Residency Award


Helen Mac Mahon, 2017 awardee of the Ormond Studios ‘Project Residency’, is currently exhibiting work at ‘Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions’ (LACE Gallery), California.

The work is called ‘Audacia’ and was made while on residency at Ormond Studios. It depicts the cymatic imaging of the female voice and attempts to connect womens gaining of suffrage in 1918 with the upcoming referendum in Ireland. The work demonstrates how the sound energy of a voice can effect physical matter and therefore how devastating the denial of that voice can be.
