Lorcan Cassidy ia a graduate from NCAD with a degree in Fine Art Sculpture and Expanded practices. He was a short term member of Ormond Studios, an artist run space in the heart of Dublin city, for eight months and has now just started as a full member.
As an artist his work revolves around creating alternate realities and then making/illustrating objects/artefacts/creatures/specimens from these fictitious worlds. Another focus of his art practice is on modes of display especially in terms of the museum context. The wunderkammer has also been a direct influence in regards to his art work. What drew him to these cabinets of curiosity was the sense of wonder and awe they inspired with the various objects they held, the curios and oddities, even in spite their contents not always being entirely genuine.
