Su Fahy

Real name: 

Su Fahy is an artist working in lens-based media, principally photography. Her research utilises the aura of the documentary photographic image in order to interrogate and contextualise our readings of natural or architectural environments. Working principally to commission, Fahy engages with theorists, photographers and archive materials with a view to producing images for collaborative publication or exhibition. Recent projects have included Fugitive Testimonies (an artist-led archive with Oh Yeah Decca !, 2015); an artist bookwork exhibited in Readers Art: Concealed, Confined and Collected, Minnesota Center for Book Arts (USA, 2015); OFF THE S(H)ELF—the eclectic in the artist’s book (group show at i-Klectic Arts Lab Space Gallery, London, 2015); a small artist bookwork installation XIII Can’t Take You Leaving Me: A Torch Song (2015); and Oceans, The Severn Sea (an e-flux platform artists’ collective project initiated by Tania Kovats, exhibited at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, 2014).
