Clodagh Emoe initiates collaborative projects and creates works that explore how meaning is formed through our connection with each other and the natural world. Her practice draws on ritual to create moments or spaces that invite thought and instil agency. Her exercises, a term she uses to describe her event based participatory works foreground experience and perception creating instances where ideas might be played out and felt.
Clodagh has initiated numerous collaborative projects; Mystical Anarchism (2009-2013) with philosopher Simon Critchley (Prof. of philosophy, New School for Social Research), Creating the Common/The Unveiling (2010) a theatrical event parodying a failed unveiling of a monumental sculpture in sheltered housing for the elderly, The Plurality of Existence… (2015-2017) public audio works for Dublin, Cork, Carlow and Galway and Crocosmia (2018) exploring metaphor through horticulture to cultivate inclusion and belonging with individuals seeking asylum.
Clodaghs work has been commissioned by Serpentine Gallery, London, Taipei Biennial, Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, Nylo, Reykjavik, documenta XIII, Kaisel, Visual, Centre for Contemporary Art, Carlow, Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery, Project Arts Centre, IMMA, Dublin and Maynooth University. She has been recently nominated for the David and Yuko Juda Award UK.
