Clodagh Emoe, b.1975


‘Azimuth’ is a wooden stage. A strange star formation is carved into the platform of the stage. The outline of star is created by sections of wax inlay individually stained with a combination of wood stain, graphite and wax. Each section is differentiated by dark green, brown and navy stain. Four tall flagpoles holding hessian flags petrified in dark wax flank the stage.

About the Artist

Clodagh Emoe b.1975

Irish artist Clodagh Emoe attended the National College of Art and Design 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. Emoe participated in the Artists’ Residency Programme at IMMA in 2006. 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.
