Fiona Naomi Cashell (b. Dublin, Ireland, 1981), is an emerging interdisciplinary artist exploring the boundaries and artistic use of photography, performance, video and sound, site-specific installation, text, drawing, painting and print. Work created is usually situational in context – utilizing the immediate environment and drawing from personal narratives (past and present; in flux) and interests such as memory, attachment, distance, otherness, place and exile. Research within her practice also includes philosophy and psychology, with a specific focus on phenomenology, otherness, sense, consciousness and cognitive aesthetics.

 

In addition to her fine art practice, Fiona is a Lecturer in Art & Design at the University of Salford, Manchester, designing and delivering modules on the BA in Digital Media Arts (Hons) program. She is a professional member of the Teaching Council of Ireland, and serves as an advisory board member for SAH Journal (Ireland)She exhibits widely, and her work has been being screened or shown in institutions such as Anthology Film Archives, New York; West African Research Center,  Senegal; Temple Bar Cultural Trust, Ireland and CICA Art Museum, Korea.
