About the Artist

McCoy's work explores how we inhabit and imagine place. Her background as an architect very much influences how she sees the world, and her practice is situated in the overlap between the two disciplines of architecture and photography, of place-making and image-making. McCoy sees them as twinned practices that reinforce and affect each other; architecture is the translation of a concept- through images, into a physical form, while photography works in the reverse- by translating an existing space into an image, an idea of itself. Both negotiate a balance between the real and the ideal, and both influence how we inhabit – how we make place, and how we construct meaning.

McCoy is interested in the space between images -whether this is between sequenced images in a photobook or how images physically relate in exhibition. Her work has generally taken the form of long term projects which investigate certain places as a means to examine architectural ideologies- from the conflict between the real and ideal within the utopia (The Radiant City), the dystopia of non-place of displacement (and live the space of a door) and the connection between political structures and representations of power in the city (Surface Tension).
