About the Artist

Clodagh Emoe b.1975

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.
