Working across photography, print, installation and moving image, Catriona Leahy’s work focuses on sites wherein a particular dissonance manifests itself temporally and spatially. Her interest lies in the remains of cultural phenomena that have been displaced, or have lost their significance in our progress-driven, globalised society.
