Mary Madeleine McCarroll


Lost and Giddy Installation View, NCAD, 2024

Mary Madeleine McCarroll is an emerging artist based in Dublin, Ireland, explores an array of mediums, including installation, photography and sculpture. Reflecting her Irish and Bahamian heritage, at the core of Mary’s artistic expression are themes of mysticism, spirituality, race, and identity. In her latest project, “Lost and Giddy”, Mary critically examines the impact of colonialism on the loss of cultural heritage, through the metaphorical depiction of Douens— figures from Caribbean folklore with backward feet. Her sculptures, inspired by African traditional art, are photographed suspended in black space and projected onto blackboards in a sequential composition critically addressing the historical appropriation of such sacred objects by colonialism.
