Maggie Madden: Field | Saturday 20 June – Saturday 18 July 2015 | RUA RED

In Maggie Madden’s work, a diverse array of collected materials are crafted into fragile sculptural formations with geometric affinities. The work is suggestive of architectural structures, but also reflects on our spatial encounters in both the urban landscape and the natural world. The detailed constructions have the potential for endless expansion; to grow outward from densely ordered space and continue boundlessly. In some of the works there are open ended references to our networked world, communication and transport systems, the infrastructures of contemporary life in modern cities. The linear structures made using fibre optic strands form subtle three dimensional drawings in space, delicately balanced and at times barely visible. During the process of construction the physical limits of the materials are taken in to account, as there is an attempt made at rendering some materials to appear almost weightless. Tension is created as the sculptural formations often have a fragility that teeters on the brink of collapse. The installation Field at RUA RED is made up from a number of linear arrangements dispersed through the space, forming one overall composition.
