Joshua Clague’s and it feels like I just got home, echoes Madonna’s Ray of Light. Clague is interested in enduring memories of the female voice in his life. The exhibition often riffs on the pop-icons and divas that he once emulated. His work lays out how his sense of self changes at different times, in different places.
Clague has a longstanding connection with the Bluecoat. He has had a studio space at Bluecoat since March 2023 as part of the New Contemporaries Studio Bursary and has also used the gallery over the last few months as a space for making new work.
Joshua Clague is a visual artist. Originally from Merseyside, Clague recently graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London. Working with writing, installation, textiles, photography and performance, their work crystallises themes of love, memory, family, fandom and form.
