The film installation ‘Parodos’ is drawn from Emoe’s larger project ‘Cult of Engagement’, commissioned by the Project Arts Centre in 2009, in which the artist deals with the dramatic tradition of Tragedy. ‘Parodos’ is the term used for the entrance song of the chorus introducing the event that is about to take place. The processional chorus in Emoe’s film is, however, silent – an absence suggesting the role of the viewer within this dynamic to imagine what unfolds.

Clodagh Emoe approaches her art practice as a form of enquiry. Her practice is expansive and collaborative; working with practitioners and researchers in areas of philosophy, architecture, botany and ecology to explore our intrinsic interconnection with the natural world. Her work is often site-specific and interventional, drawing on ritual to initiate space for tacit knowledge and affective thought.View Artist
