Caroline McCarthy’s Vita:

Crisps, toilet-paper, plastic bags, supermarket packaging, rubbish and furniture are some of the raw materials used by Caroline McCarthy in considering notions of value and taste inherent in the surface of everyday objects, images and modes of display. Positioned in response to a culture of mass production, where every kind of experience, fantasy or sense of one's place in the world is pre-determined through some form of packaging, the work employs humour and other strategies of intervention to investigate the space between ideological facade and the concrete materiality of things. Caroline McCarthy was born in Dublin, Ireland. She studied in Dublin and is based in London since completing an MA Fine Art at Goldsmiths in 1998.
