Fiona Crisp

Fiona Crisp is Professor of Fine Art at Northumbria University, Newcastle and her work is represented by Matt’s Gallery, London. Her current Leverhulme-funded Fellowship, Material Sight: Representing the Spaces of Fundamental Science, uses non-documentary photography and video to interrogate extremes of visual and imaginative representation in fundamental science and technology. Based at three world-leading research facilities, including the Laboratori Nazionale del Gran Sasso in Italy, the research places artistic production in the spaces where experimental and theoretical science is performed, foregrounding the “site” or laboratory as a social, cultural, and political space where meaning is shaped and constructed rather than received or observed.
