Performing a Translation is the first exhibition of work by current members of Ormond Studios since its relocation. ‘Translation’ is a term used in geometry to describe a function that moves an object a certain distance. The object is not altered in any other way. It is not rotated, reflected or re-sized. In a translation, every point of the object must be moved in the same direction and for the same distance.
In moving from No. 6 to No. 4 Ormond Quay, Ormond Studios have performed this translation, preserving the studio as a nucleus of art-making, a place to translate, test and transform ideas. Works reflect on this geometric term in an expanded sense, interpreting translation more broadly as a paradigm of mediation that includes aesthetic, political, topographical and intertextual transformations.
This exhibition is held in conjunction with Bealtaine Festival 2017.
