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

Seed STUDIO, is an ongoing collaborative project that the artist conceived to cultivate and deepen our connection with the natural world. Seed STUDIO was piloted in IMMA in 2022 and has expanded to include Seed STUDIO; Readings, a series of site-specific collective reading events and Seed STUDIO; Placemaking, a community project building infrastructure for human and non-human. Clodagh is currently collaborating with architect Donal Lally on Seed STUDIO; Blueprint, an investigative research project into self-sustaining methods to enhance the performance and experience of space and Seed STUDIO, A Quiet Intervention, a series of physical and experiential interventions that reveal the vibrancy of life in Goldenbridge Cemetery, Inchicore.

Selected collaborative projects include The Classroom in the Sun 2020-22, an intergenerational project empowering the community of St. Mary's JNS Rowlagh to design and build a biodiverse outdoor learning space; Reflections on a Radical Plot, 2022 an ecological archive of over 30 self-seeded wild plants growing in the artwork Crocosmia × (2018); Crocosmia × with Spirasi, (an organisation for survivors of torture who are migrants and asylum seekers) that draws into question the terms ‘foreign’ and 'native' through metaphor and gardening; and The Plurality of Existence in the Infinite Expanse of Space and Time, (2015-17) an anthology of poetry, exhibition and series of site-specific audio works for the River Liffey, the River Lee, the River Barrow and the River Corrib.
