Mark Garry: Ordinary

Process Room, 06.11.07- 13.11.07

 

Mark Garry, Ordinary, Process Room, IMMA, 2007

The work on show in the Process Room is part of an ongoing series of investigations that have interested Mark Garry over the past couple of years.  Garry’s work is based around a site specific installation practice concerned with devising methods that engage with, and navigate viewers through, physical spaces.  These installations combine physical, visual, sensory and empathetic analogues.  This practice is process driven and he is very interested in craft traditions and skilled workmanship.  It is important to Garry that his work involves the stretching and consolidating of the physical capabilities of the materials he works with, both in isolation and when combined with other materials and objects.  Garry uses a range of natural and craft materials such as thread, beads, coloured paper, origami, plants, and a range of methodologies to dynamically transform these materials in such a way as to delicately intersect the space and to leave open the possibility of imaginative responses to the visual, spatial and associative interactions created by the materials.

Mark Garry has an upcoming exhibition at the Mattress Factory Art Museum in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania in the USA.  Recent exhibitions include Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin; Temple Bar Galleries, Dublin and The Lewis Glucksman Gallery, Cork. Mark Garry was one of the artists that represented the Republic of Ireland at the 2005 Venice Biennale.
