New Artist in Residence: Marie Farrington

Meet our current resident Marie Farrington, who will work in the airWG studio till the end of June 2024. 

‘My site-responsive practice traces overlaps between landscape and memory, exploring how matter is coded and transformed over time. My work reflects on the act of making through
geological and archaeological lenses, alluding to the studio as an archival site bound to processes of accrual, removal, accumulation and erasure. Materials such as wax, dust, ink, muslin, glass, steel and anthracite converge within my installations, evoking a spectral presence through unfixed or provisional elements. My practice functions as a testing ground for agency and exchange, producing a sense of continuous entanglement among materials and their emergent correlations.’
