Catriona Gallagher is a visual artist based between Northumberland, UK and Athens, 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 2016 she co-founded A - DASH project space in Athens with Eva Isleifs, Noemi Niederhauser and Zoe Hatziyanaki, co-running the space and curating several projects between 2016 and 2018. Over the course of 2017, she undertook the Athina Garden City project in collaboration with Fanis Kafantaris to develop a new garden for A - DASH.
She has participated in artist residencies at Dilston Physic Garden in Northumberland, UK in 2017; Syros International Film Festival, Greece in June 2015; 33OC in Toffia, Italy in 2014; and Snehta in Athens, Greece in 2013. She is currently on residency at VARC as part of the ENTWINED Programme, until April 2021.
Her films have been screened at Ann Arbor, New Holland Island and Laterale film festivals in 2020.
Her writing has been published in MAP magazine (2018) and Line Magazine (2013), shortlisted for the St Hugh's Creative Writing Award (2019). In 2018 she self-published artist's book Pellitory of the Wall.
She received an MFA from Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford, in 2019, for which she was awarded an AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership scholarship; a BA (Hons) in Sculpture from Edinburgh College of Art, The University of Edinburgh, in 2013; and a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design from Leeds College of Art in 2010.
