Avril Corroon nominated for Plastik Award


Our favourite Nike Air clad graduate residency 2014 winner Avril Corroon has been shortlisted for the Plastik award for artists working with the moving image. She was nominated for the piece she created during her residency with Ormond last year, ‘JUST DO IT’. It will be screened along with the other selected works in the IFI on Saturday and the overall winner will be announced. Good luck Avril from everyone here!!!

For the first year of PLASTIK we are pleased to announce an award for new work. The programme will consist of recent work highlighting a new generation of Irish artists engaging with the moving image. This came into focus through discussions generated within the Critical Forum Dublin group, recognising the need for an award that distinguishes this area of practice. The programme demonstrates the wide range of approaches to this medium, offering a diverse perspective on contemporary moving image practice. With works by Avril Corroon, Anita Delaney, James Greenway, Tracy Hanna and Eoghan Ryan. The final winner will be selected by guest curators and announced on the occasion of the Dublin screening.

Ormond Art Studios is an artist-led initiative in Dublin city and is a platform for emerging visual artists. It supports the development of arts practice through affordable studio provision, critical discourse and space for events, residencies and exhibitions. The physical studios consists of eight individual artist's spaces along with a separate area that serves as the Project Space. The Project Space offers scope for work on a larger scale, embodied practice and experimentation. It is in this space that feedback sessions, events and exhibitions happen. We believe that critical discourse is hugely beneficial to developing a professional arts practice and essential to a dynamic arts community. Ormond Art Studios encourages members to open up their practise to peer critique and facilitates lively feedback sessions, residencies, and information/skills sharing initiatives. We believe in collaboration and connect with other creative initiatives to develop a network of support for artist‐led endeavours in Dublin and beyond. For more information please contact us at ormondartists@gmail.com Ormond Art Studios is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
