                    Meghan Clarke is a Scottish artist based in Rotterdam (NL). She works between textiles, text, sound and performance. Her work is concerned with collecting, occupying and rearranging time. Engaging in slow and meticulous processes of undoing and reordering she creates intricate tapestries from found and foraged materials - textiles, text, a cardboard box, a fragment of sound.  Her repetitive processes are a subtle act of defiance, a form of non-productive productivity that elongates the in-between moments, creating time for lingering and uncertainty.
