Internationally his work has been presented at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in Chongqing, China in 2005 and in Barthète (Toulouse), France in 2011. Mahon’s collaborative SSHRC project on the theme of water, Immersion Emergencies and Possible Worlds, began in 2010 and included a residency at the Banff Centre in 2013. As an individual artist he was in residence at the Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium and at La Maison Patrimoniale Barthète in France, both in 2011. He lives in London, Ontario.
