瑪芙．麥瑪韓Maedhbh Mc Mahon
Maedhbh Mc Mahon
Is a visual artist interested in creating environments that question specific events in
social history. Having worked in the film industry and costume/millinery for many years she is interested in amalgamating film, textiles and set design to create spaces for reflection. Over the past 4 years she has researched the history of Irelands Magdalen laundries and the effect that silence has had on communities that have been wronged by society. Her recent works deal with loss, grief and the idea of letting go.
Along with the Farcrys’ TAV Residency programme, Maedhbh will create a separate piece entitled “Ag deireadh and torramh” (the end of the wake) which will examine the ritual of death practices in both Ireland and Taipei. There are also 3 large-scale tapestries relating to the Magdalen laundry that she will work on during her 2 month stay.
