fionn duffy

With an interest in human folly and it’s slippery definitions*, Fionn responds to the material consequences of modern mythologies surrounding heritage and infrastructure, landscape and capital. She uses objects, video and text to excavate spiralling macro-narratives that explore ethical and ecological concerns that converge in porous zones of contact between bodies: chemical, mineral, cultural and historic.

Process-led and embracing autodidactic conglomerations of knowledge, Fionn attends to sympoetic methodologies to inform her practice; often working collaboratively with other artists, enthusiasts, researchers and specialists, be they human or otherwise.

*from early 13th century Middle English (from Old French folie) “foolish behaviour/wickedness/madness”, but also used in the 12th century meaning “delight”.
