Helen Mac Mahon ‘Fortuna’ at MART

Helen Mac Mahon will be showing work as part of the MART Experiments series. It opens on Monday the 7th of December at 6pm and will run until Thursday the 10th.

Fortuna is comprised of a collection of works at various stages of development whose realisation owes much to the element of chance.
The starting point for each of the works is the manipulation of light, but serendipitous discoveries have been allowed to lead the course of creative action.
Mundane, everyday items introduced have acted as catalysts, producing surprising results and offering opportunities to push the process of discovery further along an undetermined path. This type of experimentation has become the very root of my practice.
These works are not intended to be finished pieces and are more akin to sketches that inform and influence each other. They allow a glimpse into a process of investigation – one where the eventual outcome cannot be fully predicted. Curiosity fuels this experimental approach. An openness to experimentation for its own sake facilitates the growth and development of the work.
