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.
