Filipa Harrington

Filipa‚Äôs practice involves an interest in drawing and it’s extended meanings within contemporary art. Interested in the space between an artist and a drawing, and then the space between an art object and it’s viewer, her practice involves working in both the second and third dimension, and the frameworks created in them. She is intrigued by sensitivity within drawings and how they are made, and how that can be translated into sculptural forms. She often uses repetitive, simple methods to make things which then represent both a measure of labour and happy accidents. Filipa’s process works to allow me to investigate everyday materials and their properties, such as graphite, modelling clay and paper, which are then translated into art objects. Her materials are thus simultaneously linked to her and her use of them, as well as to the world in which they are made and received.
