Catriona Gallagher is a visual artist based between Northumberland and Athens. Her work moves between film, drawing, writing and installation and navigates the overlooked details in our physical surroundings and the psychological landscapes mirroring them.
She has exhibited in the UK, Ireland, Greece, Italy and France, and her films have premiered at Sheffield Doc Fest, Ann Arbor, New Holland Island and Laterale film festivals. Perdikaki, her first film, was awarded the Special Mention in the Short Film Competition at New Holland Island in 2020.
She has participated in artist residencies at Visual Arts in Rural Communities, Northumberland in 2020-2021; Syros International Film Festival, Greece in 2015; 33OC, Italy in 2014; and Snehta Residency, Greece, in 2013.
Her writing has been published in MAP magazine (2017) and Line Magazine (2013) and in 2018 she self-published an artist's book Pellitory of the Wall.
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 projects between 2016 and 2019.
