Bridget O’Gorman

Resident artist

Bridget O’Gorman is a visual artist and researcher based in the UK. Working across sculpture, text, video and event, her practice highlights a destabilised and haptic evolution within the lives of objects and bodies. Her methods focus upon connecting the animate and the inanimate, informing a dialogue around potential and expanded corporeal experiences.

Her work has been supported through various awards, fellowships and residencies including the Irish Museum of Modern Art Residency/Freud Project, IE (2017/18), Future World of Work - FACT, DaDa Fest and NHS Hospitals Trust Liverpool, UK (2018), Wheatley Fine Art Fellowship, UK (2017), Arts Council of Ireland Visual Arts Bursary Award (2014/16) & Fire Station Artists Studios IE (2014 - 17).
