Klaire Doyle is an interdisciplinary artist and art educator from Northern England.
Her practice investigates sentient / insentient lived experiences and the reclamation of feminine abjection via action, scenography and participatory practice. Vulnerability and curious narratives are at the heart of Klaire's research which longs to answer questions to better navigate the world she lives in. Phenomenology and storytelling is also of great influence to Klaire's practice as she sources experiences of her own and those close around her in an autoethnographic / ethnographic journey to represent those histories. Her work often confronts these discoveries with grotesque humour and a sarcastic bite to overshadow misrepresentations
Klaire's studio is based at Castlefield Wigan New Art Space and she is an associate artist at Cross Street Arts, The Birley and Wigan STEAM. Her works have been internationally exhibited since 2014, including solo and group works in New York City, Venice Architecture Biennale, Moscow, Tokyo, Helsinki, Melbourne and the Liverpool TATE Exchange.
