Biography


Masters Art & Science Central St. Martins, Born Eleanor Angele Flory Fawcett 1986, raised in Thornham Magna, Suffolk. After several years studying and living in London, Eleanor currently lives and works in Mumbai

As a multimedia artist, Fawcett works with video, drawing, painting, photography, ready-mades, woodwork, textiles, sound and installation. The subject always determines the media and not the other way round. With strong ethnographic concerns, Fawcett’s work has always observed, documented and archived of sorts, customs of different social groups, collectives, subcultures and individuals. The work is engaged in an ongoing dialogue about the spurious boundaries between the practices of ethnography and fine art. Working as a kind of auto-cultural archeologist and a folk ethnographer, Fawcett employs the concept of auto/ethnography rooting out unsung heroes within her own cultural milieu and documenting people that successfully forge a life for themselves outside the conventional parameters of society. Fawcett sees these people as necessary paradigms in an age of homogenised culture.
