Claire Yspol’s artistic practice revolves around exploring the materiality of language and the waywardly poetic qualities of everyday life. She mines disciplines such as physics, as well as her own lexicon, to make experimental texts with. These are turned into publications or performed live for example.
Her writing process is intuitive and could be compared to making a sculpture: elements are moulded, added to, or broken up to make something akin to a linguistic object.
Uncertainty and ambiguity are important constructive devices in Claire’s work; she uses them to make known things ‘other’, and, in the process creates new associative possibilities.
Claire was born in Rotterdam (the Netherlands) and lives in Scotland where she is currently pursuing an MFA.
