with a special screening of Clodagh Emoe and Simon Critchley’s:’Mystical Anarchism’ (2011)

Following on from the Black Metal Symposium we posted about already, a related event happens in NCAD the following day.

Nicola Masciandaro is Associate Professor of English at Brooklyn College, CUNY and a specialist in medieval literature. He is the author of The Voice of the Hammer (Notre Dame, 2007), editor of Hideous Gnosis (2010), editor of the journal Glossator (glossator.org) and co-director of punctum books (punctumbooks.com). His current book project is on mystical sorrow.

Clodagh Emoe is interested in artistic frameworks that mobilize affect through forms of collective gatherings. These include Mystical Anarchism, 2009, with Prof. Simon Critchley, The Long Dark Night, 2010, with Mark Fisher, Edia Connole and Sally O’ Reilly, in conjunction with the solo-show Cult of Engagement, Project Arts Centre, Metaphysical Longings II, 2010, a collective psychic sleep session held at dusk in The National Gallery of Ireland and The Unveiling, 2010, a collaborative piece of site-specific theatre parodying the failed unveiling of a monumental sculpture for Dublin City Council.

Clodagh holds a MA, Fine Art, Chelsea College and a BA, Fine Art, NCAD. She is currently a PhD researcher GradCAM./DIT. Her research by practice proposes an interpretation of aesthetics that is departs from speculation to that of an active and discursive configuration of art and philosophy.

Her work is included in the collections of IMMA, Limerick City Gallery, Kilfane Sculpture Garden, Anthony Reynolds and The University of the Arts, London. She has received awards from The Arts Council of Ireland, Culture Ireland, South Dublin County Council, Dublin City Council, Tyrone Gutherie Centre, IMMA, PRTLI (IR) and ARHB, (UK).
