The MART Gallery are delighted to announce the winners of our annual MART Exhibition Award: Èanna Heavey and Sarah Diviney from the 2018 CIT Crawford College of Art & Design Fine Art Graduate exhibition and Emma McKeagney from Fire Station Artists’ Studios 2018 Sculpture Bursary Award. The aim of this award is to provide a showcase and supported exhibition opportunity to emerging artists whose work is both engaging and experimental.

The artwork presented is a selection of sculptural forms, video work and live performance. Emma McKeagney’s beautiful sculptural objects are presented alongside new video work that further explores the materiality of natural and designed forms. Sarah Diviney’s moving performative work reflects Ireland’s state institutional treatment of women, many of whose fate was sealed due to the woeful lack of sexual education in Irish society as referenced in Èanna Heavey’s powerful and unsettling video piece ‘I’m sorry I was not here..’.

The exhibition is kindly supported by CIT Crawford College of Art & Design, Cork and Fire Station Artists’ Studios (FSAS), Dublin, the Arts Council Ireland, The MART Gallery & Studios, and Dublin City Council.

*Lectus – Latin word meaning selected, chosen, choice, good, exquisite
