Caroline McCarthy was born in Dublin and has lived in London since completing an MA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in 1998. Exhibiting widely in the UK and internationally, her work examines mundane events and objects, even the detritus of our lives, to see what they reveal about the human condition, as well as our perception and ideas of value. Recent exhibitions include “Nature Morte”, an international touring exhibition in association with the Thames & Hudson publication by Michael Petry; “Group Coordination”, co-curated by McCarthy with the Collections team at The Irish Museum of Modern Art; “To Be Continued”, curated by The British Council, Helsinki Kunsthalle; Banksy's “Dismaland”, Weston-super-Mare.
