Green on Red Gallery


Bea McMahon

Bea McMahon realises her work through moving image, still image and installation. These works begin with things like holes, mothers, particle detectors and cats and these things are juxtaposed with explorations into the representation and manipulation of rules and ideas about time, space, events and matter. This is where it gets confused - not only with the apparatus for recording and display of the work, but also with the viewer’s own senses; and so she questions the way that our impression of the world is given and how we extend into it (or how we imagine we extend into it).
