Cará Donaghey

Cará Donaghey is an artist from Co. Donegal, and has been based in Dublin since 2014. She graduated from NCAD in 2017 with a BA (Hons) in Print & Visual Culture. She serves on the board of Black Church Print Studio and is one of this year’s recipients of the Clancy Quay studio residency sponsored by NCAD & Kennedy Wilson. Cará works with the term ‘the archive’ in a flexible and contemporary sense. She is currently interested in researching the history of her locality of Buncrana, Co. Donegal. Her practice focuses on the operative aspects of archiving – collecting, preserving, and mediating images, drawings, and objects. Her recent and continuing body of work has considered the recorded evidence of an Early Bronze-Age cremation burial found during a site-dig for an estate of new houses in her neighbourhood of Gransha, Buncrana.
