Fiona Larkin's work arises from an interest in the lives of others. In discovering ways of understanding and engaging with others, the work finds form in a variety of media from action to video to drawing. The camera is used to engage reflexively and directly with viewers. The work surrenders to the determination of significant chance elements, for example: a stranger marked with an unusual emblem, a collection of 'yellow' images gathered through casual sightings, or to the kindness of strangers. Larkin's interventions become connective tissue between action, material production and the viewer's access to the story. More
