Basic Space is delighted to present Helen Mac Mahon for our October BASIC TALK.

Helen Mac Mahon is an artist living and working in Dublin. She is a graduate of Fine Art from DIT. Her work revolves around the investigation of light in its many manifestations. Her artworks take a number of forms, often large scale installations which lend themselves to the immersive and experiential nature of the medium. Other works take the form of smaller sculptural items, often interactive, that seek to draw attention to the invisible interconnections that exist between ourselves and the world around us. Photography and drawing also play a large part in her research process. The work seeks to reveal the extraordinary in the ordinary through the exploration of how natural phenomena interacts with the seemingly mundane objects of everyday life often with surprising results.

BASIC TALKS is a series of talks with leading contemporary practitioners, taking place at The Hugh Lane on the second Friday of every month. Curated by Basic Space in partnership with The Hugh Lane, BASIC TALKS is a platform for lectures, workshops, presentations, and performances. Speakers include artists, curators, writers, and critics who will generate discourse on producing, framing and exhibiting art. BASIC TALKS is a collaboration between Basic Space and The Hugh Lane, exploring alternatives in the dissemination of contemporary art and its discourses.

Admission is free but spaces are limited to 50 so please arrive promptly to avoid disappointment.
