Activity: Other


McHugh was one of 13 artists invited to participate in The Clay Reader: Scoria, Scoria Jeju Scoria, an artist in residence programme organised by City Art Community and funded by the Jeju Culture and Art Foundation. The project was to be held on Jeju Island, South Korea, in August 2020, and the aim was for participants to research and respond creatively to Jeju scoria, a volcanic soil particular to this island. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the residency was cancelled. Instead, participants were sent a small quantity of scoria to work with in their respective countries. McHugh's output, Corresponding with Jeju Scoria, comprises a new body of research artefacts (ceramic artworks), an essay, and a film which documents this process.
