Cat McClay and Éiméar McClay
Cat and Éiméar McClay are Irish-born collaborative artists currently based in Glasgow. They both graduated in Intermedia Art from Edinburgh College of Art in 2020. Their collaborative practice considers ideas of queerness, abjection and patriarchal systems of power and oppression through an interdisciplinary body of work comprising video, 3D models, installation and digital collage. It draws on and seeks to examine the historical narration of the queer body within heteronormative society.
