artist nominated by Aram Moshayedi

Fiona Connor

1981 · Auckland, New Zealand

Fiona Connor creates sculptural installations where she replicates the props and structures of everyday life. Her recreations of noticeboards, drinking fountains, outdoor furniture and doors not only draw attention to these widely overlooked items and their forms, they also reconstruct the histories of communities. She studied at the ELAM School of Fine Arts and in 2009 moved to Los Angeles to attend the California Institute of the Arts. She has been involved with various artist-run spaces, including the Varese Group, an annual symposium of artists, designers and writers. In 2019 she has a solo exhibition at the SculptureCenter in New York and at Secession in Vienna.
