Happy Imbolc

Studio Artist Bronagh Lee’s animation “Revolve & Revolution” made for Brigid Dublin , A city-wide celebration of women past & present inspired by the Celtic goddess Brigit, Wed 1 – Mon 6 Feb 2023, will be projected in Barnardo Square until the 6th February.

The animation tells the story of the Celtic Goddess Brigid in the modern world. In speaking about the piece Bronagh said ‘Revolve and Revolution’ tells the story of the Celtic Goddess Brigit in the modern world. I love that Brigit stands for so many different things that are both parallel and perpendicular to one another. From water and serenity to fire and passion. Magic, healing, protection, poetry and rebellion – Brigit stands for the complexity of the modern-day woman and the power that they possess in being both gentle and strong.’

Be sure to check out the videos featuring aerial performances in front of Bronagh’s animation on the brigit_dublin Instagram page.

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.
