Rachael Clerke and Oisín McKenna

Rachael Clerke and Oisín McKenna met on the Beyond Queer Lab at Metal Peterborough. They are both cynics who work with humour and satire, and often make work about capitalism.

In residency at Metal Southend they want to think about the impending climate collapse, extinction, queer-capitalism and eco-capitalism by thinking writing making watching reading together over five days in June, beside the sea, with the water levels rising and – perhaps – the sun beating down. They are keen to think about the psychological impact of trying to save the world (which feels impossible even when you can buy reusable water bottles which say SAVING THE PLANET on them). They would also like to invite Southend residents to watch apocalypse movies with them.
