Holly Pickering | Metaxu

Metaxu, an ethereal evening of live vocal and electronic music performances in the Pepper Canister Church with musicians and sound artists Aisling Or Ni Aodha, Soria Reilly, Dylan Kerr and Dreamcycles organised and curated by Jennifer Moore. The Metaxu series’s second iteration took place last Thursday, April 6th 2023. For the event, studio member Holly Pickering contributed a written piece printed in the accompanying pamphlet alongside drawings from Cara Farnan. Holly’s moving words accompanied a fantastic evening of music and performance in relation to the idea of Metaxu as explored in the writings of the mystic philosopher Simone Weil.

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.
