Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Art

Clay AD

The image shown above represent the Glasgow International 2024 project that Clay AD is participating in, not the artist’s individual practice.

Clay AD is a sentient ball of spikes, a student of the body, and lover of dirt. His practice involves making sculpture, writing, facilitating workshops and offering somatic bodywork. His work (solo, group and workshops) has been performed and exhibited at BUZZCUT Performance Art Festival Glasgow, Slug Gallery Leipzig, Tanztage Festival Berlin, Kunstinstituut Melly Rotterdam, La Casa Encendida Madrid. His first poetry book Holy Bodies was published with Pilot Press in 2023, and his science fiction novel Metabolize, If Able was published in 2018 by Monster House Press and is available as a second edition print by Arcadia Missa Publications.
