unrecognisable (spillway) 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 whose practice encompasses video, performance and sculpture, focusing on how digital image cultures are performed. 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. 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). 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 that seeks to expand strategies for the dual presentation of work in both the physical and virtual environment and a member of the Douglas Hyde Gallery Student Forum III. He was awarded the Rua Red Art Prize in 2018’s Winter Open with a follow on solo show (My Activity) in the gallery in 2019. He was shortlisted for the RDS Visual Art Awards 2020 and was the recipient of the Ormond Art Studios, Graduate Residency Award (2020).

Published by Ormond Art Studios

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