Using brown paper as her main material, Mary Evans' evocative site-specific installations reflect on the impact of tragic and brutal moments in history. Her cut-out silhouettes build on the classical tradition of portraiture to question ideas around representation, cultural change and globalisation.


Evans studied at Goldsmiths and the Rijksakademie and has been a recipient of the Arts and Literary Arts Residency at the Rockefeller Foundation and the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, Washington DC, USA. Recent exhibitions include La Banque, France (2020), the 11th Mercosul Visual Arts Biennial, Brazil (2018), EVA - Ireland's Biennial (2016), Southbank Centre, London (2014), Blaffer Art Museum, Houston (2013), University of Massachusetts (2013, and Meditations, her solo exhibition at Baltimore Museum of Art (2008).
