Eleanor Duffin is a visual artist, born and raised in Wexford, Ireland and currently lives and works between Bristol, UK and Brussels, Belgium. Recurring concerns within Duffin’s practice are the role of verbal and text-based language in the process of making, the relationship between the female body and traditional sculptural materials, and the nature of co-working with both human and non-human entities.
Her work has recently been included in Overburden, Yellowfields Publication (2020); A Phantom Limb, MIRROR Gallery, Plymouth, UK (2020); Women on the Moon, Klaipeda, LT (2019); A Scaffolding, Tique Projects, Antwerp, BE (2019); Scratch Lab, Caraboo Projects, Bristol, UK (2019); EBC21, East Bristol Contemporary, Bristol, UK (2019). She has participated in international residency programs including: Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha, US (2017); Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne, Australia (2013); and Fire Station Artists Studios, Dublin, Ireland (2010-2013). Duffin is an associate lecturer at PXL School for Fine Art & Design, Belgium and is currently conducting a practice based PhD in Contemporary Visual Art at University of Hasselt, Belgium.
