Mari Mahr; Isolated Incidents

Exhibition organised and toured by the Photographers Gallery, London

Mon 30 Sep – Sat 26 Oct 1991

The Chilean born British photographer started her career as a photo-journalist but has moved steadily away from documentary to develop a distinctive, personal and innovative approach to photography. This exhibition comes to the Mead Gallery after an extensive tour of Europe and the United States. Based on travels to China, Israel, the South of France and the South Seas, it will also include a series of her most recent work.

“Whereas most people bring back snapshots from their holidays aboard, I bring back ‘location shots’ which become background for the photographs I make on return … not just visual records of place, people and objects … my works are a fusion of the real and the imagined”, Mari Mahr.

Works were bought from this exhibition for the University of Warwick Art Collection
