a place of their own is the art + spatial research practice of Paula McCloskey and Sam Vardy. Through art and spatial practice, we interrogate and propose within entanglements of climate, capital, technology and politics. We operate as a collective, a couple, with our children, and through collaborations with others.

Eile / Lobster




Eile swims with lobsters in the arcane shadows of the Irish sea; outstretched hand touching claw. She listens. These old creatures of the murk and mud with raspy whispers that carry across the ocean like the floating tune of a violin; far below the surf and swell. Their serenading song conjures secrets of ancient images of strange lands where no human-body has seen or been. Their antennae summon a world yet-to-come with an outstretched bow and strings. For these dignified ancients carry a deep knowledge of different times and spaces; they traverse planes and reach through waves for the ocean and her critters care not for borders.
