Bio:

Clare McGarrigle has worked for many years as an artist and educator whose work explores the relationship between the body, movement, and light. Her costumes are constructed from simple geometric shapes that allow the performer to create complex, ever changing structures. The layering of colour, and transparencies are also important elements within her work that enable the costumes to create visual illusions in space.

Clare has exhibited her work at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Shoreditch Town Hall and the Lilian Baylis Theatre. She has designed and made costumes for the City of London Festival, Extant Theatre, Lola Maury Dance and SKADoosh Dance.

Clare currently lectures on the Foundation Art and Design programmes at Leeds College of Art and Kensington and Chelsea College.
