b. 1988, Ireland
Mahon’s work relies heavily on the found object, on the ephemeral, and on the natural world. Placing found and made objects together in space to create symphonic dialogues, the work is both serious and playful. Interestingly, many of the pieces continue in transformation after their exhibition, are redefined and recontextualised into new pieces. This betrays Mahon’s preoccupation with movement and the fleeting moment: making the work both fixed object and fluid process.
