Working predominantly in sculpture, incorporating elements of writing and photography, Francesca’s practice extracts familiar objects and iconographies to be viewed through the lens of the artefact or heirloom; in order to investigate their relationships to gestures of heritage, memory, grief and assimilation. Inhabiting a self-reflexively anthropological methodology, she constructs speculative studies of personal and microcosmic histories; alongside the wider political, cultural, ecological and mythological contexts of the landscapes these emerge from. Searching for the specific moments where objects and symbols within the remit of the everyday can come to embody the talismanic, votive or ritual - and how the care with which these images are preserved can reference languages of the souvenir, collection or archive - her work seeks to construct its own embedded semiotics emerging from a histriographic interrogation of the hauntologies found in public, private and pedagogical spaces. Focussing on analogue and craft-based practices, Francesca’s work continually engages with the metaphorical core of materials and processes; utilising their contextual associations to narrativise emergences of intergenerational knowledge in making traditions, and assembling a mythopoetic museology of gathered, scavenged and falsified objects.

Francesca is a 2021 graduate from the BA fine art course at Goldsmiths University, and was a 2021-22 resident with Conditions Studio Programme. She is a member of A Particular Reality, an educational collective of students and staff from the Art Departments at Goldsmiths, Kingston, Manchester and Middlesex Universities focussing on art, learning and anti-racism. Francesca’s practice extends, responds and develops in relation to her work in art education; regularly facilitating and developing workshops and projects for a range of young people in school, university and gallery settings.
