A Joint Exhibition of New Works
This exhibition is a showing of results of an ongoing inquiry into decision-making. The investigation was undertaken whilst completing the MAvis at IADT.
Role, identity and situation in society features in the constructed forms by Markey building large assemblages comprising of found wood and objects. The Souring of material from the surrounding areas is an important aspect to the work. The lost components of the city are regenerated in art to provide a place of self reflection on the meaning and the assumption of role and position of the individual within society.
Forming work that has a challenging and confrontational presence in the art space, the work engages the viewer and ponders the physical act of looking. The construction of the work is a documented performance, with eight to ten hours of continuous making provides a platform for the artist to commune with the raw material and to react to the structure of the art space in a conversation of movement and material. Working from sketches the constructions formed from the creative act existed only in the point of making, continually change during the exhibition till the work has completely dissipated and the art space has returned to awaiting art environment.
