Irish artist Clodagh Emoe attended the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) and Chelsea College of Art, London. Emoe’s art practice combines fine art techniques, film and installation to examine the intricacies and instances occurring, often unnoticed, in the universe.

Recent projects include ‘Mystical Anarchism’, 2009, with the philosopher Simon Critchley; ‘The Long Dark Night’, 2010, with Mark Fisher and ‘The Unveiling’, 2010, a collaborative piece of site-specific theatre parodying the failed unveiling of a monumental sculpture for Dublin City Council. The film documenting ‘The Unveiling’ was previewed in IMMA. Her work is included in the collections of Limerick City Gallery; Kilfane Sculpture Garden, Kilkenny, and University of the Arts, London.

Emoe participated in the Artists’ Residency Programme at IMMA in 2006.

Residency Profile

10 October 2005 – 31 March 2006, Studio 13

Similar to the obsessive activities of the cartographer, Clodagh Emoe’s art practice examines the intricacies and instances that occur in the universe that often go unnoticed. Using techniques associated with traditional fine art practice alongside technological devices, Emoe endeavours to make sense of the world around her. Research plays a significant role in her practice resulting in an involved collaboration with people both inside and outside the art world. With this diverse and democratic approach, her practice blurs the boundaries, research becomes art and art becomes research. Emoe has worked on many collaborative projects both within the art world and the wider community.

The Process Room

Clodagh Emoe’s work will be in the Process Room, First Floor Galleries, IMMA, from 21 March to  2 April 2006.
