    UK, Visual Art & Sound
    Born in Glasgow, currently based in London. Having had an early education in classical music her practice centers itself on the convergence of systems of communication and interpretation and the ways in which cultural narrative shape subjective experience. Duffy’s practice manifests itself in a variety of forms, from sculpture, video and photography to installation, audio recording, musical composition and performance.

Duffy’s work has been exhibited across the UK, Japan, Hungary and the USA.
