Stipendien der Stiftung Niedersachsen für Medienkunst am Edith-Russ-Haus für Medienkunst 2016
Prototypes has been awarded the grant from the Foundation of Lower Saxony at the Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art 2016.
Doireann O'Malley's film Prototypes brings together transgender studies, science fiction, biopolitics, psychoanalysis, AI, and experimental sound. She skillfully ties these to phantoms of modernist utopias, epitomized by the postwar architecture of Berlin, which serves as a dreamlike scenography for the main, protagonists' ghostly actions. The work combines glimpses of the future with (unfulfilled) promises of the past. The artist goes through an in-depth process of understanding female-to-male transitioning from psychiatric, linguistic, and medical perspectives. The jury was captivated by the brutal beauty and originality of Doireann O'Malley's vision, which has the possibility of materializing into a unique and astute work that will reach audiences beyond the art world.
Doireann will be artist in residence during October 2016.
