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.

Ormond 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 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.
