The Plurality of Existence   was developed and realised by Clodagh Emoe in collaboration with Crocosmia, a group of aslyum seekers living in Ireland. This site-specific audio installation created for The River Barrow seeks to offer a thought provoking meditation on representation, equality and community by presenting voices of those who are not represented, on a political, cultural or social level. Revealing both shared and different realities presents an alternate reading of community centered on the relations that are formed across categories of nation, race and culture. Texts that inform this installation are currently on exhibition in the galleries at VISUAL Carlow.  A series of text based works that inform this site specific audio installation are currently on exhibition at Visual.

Clodagh Emoe’s works are underpinned by liminality, an in-between or “other” state. Through these works she explores the nature of being and the place of the subject within the world. Clodagh holds a PhD titled Exploring the Philosophical Character of Contemporary Art through a Post-Conceptual Practice from GradCAM/DIT.
