MART Gallery & Studios Dublin curators Matthew Nevin & Deirdre Morrissey are delighted to present Transmission an exhibition featuring Irish Artists Sofie Loscher, Helen Mac Mahon & Robin Price in the Hangar Galleries, Los Angeles as part of Irelandweek 2018. Within their work, the artists examine and reinvent light as a material, producing experimental methodologies to act as a mirror and analysis of the structure of our world.
Featuring Live Performances and readings from local artists & performers on the opening night; including Thinh Nguyen.
Transmission explores light as catalyst to investigate the risks in our everyday life. By creating dialogues which challenge conventional views, the exhibition aims to push preconceived expectations of how visibility works and is understood. The exhibition surveys the processes of how light moves through space, exploring both its and our expectations of its functions. The way that light moves through space can often bring forward new possibilities in presentation and representation, igniting exploration through visibility and quite often producing overlooked qualities. The works explore visibility, the process of perception, expectations versus function and assesses how our beliefs or understanding of light can be changed or manipulated through positioning, alignment and juxtaposition
