Basic Space is delighted to announce Rosie O’Reilly as the recipient of the Basic Space Artist Residency (BS/AR) March 2019, in partnership with ONONO, Rotterdam.

Rosie O’Reilly is an artist and maker. She is concerned with the rationalist-constructivist view of nature that separates it from experience. She works across audio, sculpture and drawing making site specific and responsive work. Recent collaborative exhibitions include: Tulca 2018, Guest Appearance – Trinity College Dublin, The Museum Building April 2018; ROSC: Fiction of the Contemporary, Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) 2017; PIIGS: An Alternative Geography to Curating, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Turin, Italy 2016. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally including Tombollo 2017, ‘Seasons as Fluid Forms’ Centro de Cultura Antiguo Instituto Gijon, Spain (2014) NLA III at Museum of Contemporary Art Dublin 2013, 4/704 – The Fringe theatre festival Dublin. She holds an MA from IADT ARC (2018).

Rosie will receive a large studio space and accommodation in Rotterdam with support from Basic Space and ONONO for the month of March 2019.

ONONO is a project space and studio co-founded by Cihad Caner, Raluca Croitoru, Daniel Fogarty, Tracy Hanna and Clara J:son Borg, located on Wolphaertstraat, Rotterdam. It was established in 2016 and hosts exhibitions, screenings and other events.

The BS/AR is part of a multi-site programme of exhibitions, residencies and public programmes looking at institutional attitudes, community spaces and education. It is a continuation of Basic Space’s commitment to emerging artists through the allocation of residency opportunities, encouraging risk-taking and experimental attitudes in the production and dissemination of new work. As part of our representative programme policy, we would like to particularly encourage applications by disabled, LGBTQ+ and BAME artists.
