Ormond Art Studios are pleased to present ‘u̷n̷r̷e̷c̷o̷g̷n̷i̷s̷a̷b̷l̷e̷(̷s̷p̷i̷l̷l̷w̷a̷y̷)̷’, the first solo exhibition by 2020 Graduate Residency Award recipient Luke van Gelderen.
u̷n̷r̷e̷c̷o̷g̷n̷i̷s̷a̷b̷l̷e̷(̷s̷p̷i̷l̷l̷w̷a̷y̷)̷ focuses on digital image cultures and how mediated imagery is performed in ways that alter memory and the self. The infinite making and remaking of digital identities questions the possibility of true ‘authentic’ memory in the digital age. The aim is to question the role multinational technology companies play in how we view ourselves and whether networked environments drive compulsive self-obsession, ultimately blinding users to their own ends.
Luke van Gelderen is a visual artist based in Dublin. He is a 2020 graduate of Dún Laoghaire Institute Of Art Design + Technology’s BA Art Programme and was an Erasmus student in Iceland’s University of the Arts, BA Fine Art Programme. His practice encompasses video, performance and sculpture, focusing on how digital image cultures are performed. Luke has exhibited in Rua Red, Pallas Projects/Studios, Claremorris Open Exhibition, Hafnarborg (The Hafnarfjördur Centre of Culture and Fine Art), Iceland and the IAA Dublin Control Tower for Fingal Culture Night (2019). He was awarded the Rua Red Art Prize in 2018’s Winter Open resulting in a solo show (My Activity) in the gallery in 2019. His piece Chatroulette included a live stream performance as part of a solo show in K4 Galleri, Oslo Art Weekend, 2019. He is a co-founder of cruxx.project an experimental curatorial platform inspired by a ring-fort in South Dublin that seeks to expand strategies for the dual presentation of work in both the physical and virtual environment. Luke is a member of the Douglas Hyde Gallery Student Forum III and has been shortlisted for the RDS Visual Art Awards 2020.
