Helen Mac Mahon, 2017 awardee of the Ormond Studios ‘Project Residency’, is currently exhibiting work at ‘Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions’ (LACE Gallery), California.
The work is called ‘Audacia’ and was made while on residency at Ormond Studios. It depicts the cymatic imaging of the female voice and attempts to connect womens gaining of suffrage in 1918 with the upcoming referendum in Ireland. The work demonstrates how the sound energy of a voice can effect physical matter and therefore how devastating the denial of that voice can be.

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.

Ormond Art Studios is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
