Alice Maher: Becoming
DUBLIN  •  Irish Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing

Becoming is a mid-career retrospective of the work of Irish artist Alice Maher (b. 1956). The show includes painting, sculpture, photography and animation.

According to the curatorial statement, the title Becoming, hints at some of the main preoccupations of the artist and the themes that are explored in the exhibition.  A dress can be becoming or flattering; oneís behaviour can become you, as you act in an appropriate way within a social construct; but becoming also points at a point of transformation where something becomes something else, Maherís work has always placed itself at this nexus, a point of metamorphosis where there is continuous flux as states shift and the familiar becomes otherworldly or unknown - where the inappropriate and the unacceptable are constantly called into play.
