Catriona Gallagher

Catriona is a visual artist based between the UK and Greece. Her works move between film, drawing, writing and installation and navigate the overlooked details in our physical surroundings and the psychological landscapes mirroring them.

In highlighting vestigial details in the built environment, like light movements, plant growth and collective memory slippages, her work seeks new symbols to chart and map, revealing the spaces we occupy physically and psychologically. Our physical surroundings are brought into parallel with hidden landscapes of the mind, the fragmentation of memory and the significance we assign to places. Her approach is site specific in responding to the locations she occupies, positing them as ‘mindspaces’ and containers for language. An observant perception leads to a fractured interspersal of reality and a state of heightened imagination.
