Fiona Marron was born in Co. Monaghan in 1987 and now lives and works in Dublin. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Dublin Institute of Technology (2009) and with an MA in Visual Arts Practice from IADT Dun Laoghaire (2013).
Fiona’s work relates to several interconnected social systems bound through an interest in mercantile and economic influence. By means of encountering contexts of labour and trade, together with the protagonists of these environments, she explores the curiosities of behavioural traits that interest her most. Her practice has evolved through engagement with both pre-existing and constructed situations within these contexts, the results of which are often manifested as video installations.
Upcoming shows include a solo presentation at Flat Time House, London (2015), an exhibit at Carrickmacross Arts Festival (2015), group show ‘Reverse Pugin!’ at St. Cartage Hall, Lismore Caste Arts, Co.Waterford (2015) and ‘Reverse Pugin! Part II’ in London (2016). She has undertaken several residencies since 2009, including most recently at Flat Time House, London (2015), Creative Spark Residency Programme (2015), Firestation Artists Studios, Dublin (2015), Sirius Arts Centre, Cork (2014) and RUA RED South Dublin Arts Centre (2012-2013). She is also currently artist-in-residence at UCD Science Department, School of Physics from 2015 until Spring 2016. Her work has featured in several international art journals including Art Monthly (2014), Paper Visual Art (2012) and MAP (2011).
