Conor Nolan | Dog Days Zine

cover

Dog Days was made my member Conor Nolan as an experimental personal project earlier this year. The book was conceived during a period of creative block at the end of 2018, when walking his dog served as a release from creative frustration for Nolan. The 16-page risograph printed book uses simple sequencing, isolation of elements such as houses and trees, and interaction between the two main characters (Nolan and his dog Bert) as a way to set the scene of a quiet suburban night’s walk.

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. For more information please contact us at ormondartists@gmail.com Ormond Art Studios is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
