Evelyn Broderick is a visual artist, maker and ceoltóir. Her praxis MAKING|THINKING is an open dialogue that evolves through the interactions of the communities she engages with. Evelyn develops socially engaged structures to shackle and bind sculpture, printmaking and sound together in order to question the role making has in a both social and collective context. As a traditional Irish flute player, Evelyn’s sculptural work draws on the performative collective experience intrinsic to Irish traditional music. In 2020 Evelyn was artist in residence at UCD’s Parity Studios at the College of Social Science and Law. She is currently artist in residence at Studio 468 as part of Common Ground’s community based residency where Evelyn is further developing her project The People’s Shed which acts as a space of sharing skills and knowledge, exploring ideas of how a community’s social fabric can be discussed, honoured and fostered through collective making.
Evelyn is the recipient of the inaugural FSAS Residency Award for Artist with a Socially Engaged Art Practice.
