Fiona Crisp is known for her installations of large-scale photographs that question the ontological presence of the photographic image.
She explores concepts of truth and memory, often spending intensive periods of time in historical sites which have been opened up to tourists, such as the early Christian catacombs of Rome and a World War II underground military hospital in the Channel Islands.
Crisp graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in 1993 and has since exhibited both nationally and internationally, spending time working in Norway and Rome. Her major solo exhibition Subterrania toured across the UK, launching at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art. Her work is in collections including the Tate Collection, Government Art Collection and Arts Council Collection.
