Launch/Preview – whatever it amounts to

15th July 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Partisan are delighted to be hosting the launch party for Hilary O’Mahony’s upcoming exhibition at 3space.

Partisan Collective will be serving drinks, playing some music, and enjoying the wonderful artwork! We hope to see you there!


whatever it amounts to is the title of a new body of work by artist Hilary O’ Mahony. This project was made in response to an observation of a vast amount of discarded scratch cards littering the streets in a South Manchester suburb. The lottery is an emotionally charged game. It creates many conflicting feelings, most notably luck, hope and disappointment. These associated feelings are encapsulated within this body of work raising questions about the ethics of the game. whatever it amounts to is concerned with value, identity and self-pursuit. It positions the national lottery as a lens through which these societal concepts are explored.


Hilary O’ Mahony is an Irish artist currently living and working in Manchester. She graduated with a degree in Fine Art from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Ireland in 2010. Hilary has exhibited extensively in Ireland and the UK as well as exhibitions in France and Nepal. Her practice is multidisciplinary.
