Blue Firth

United Kingdom

Born in Nottingham and currently studying at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, Blue has a long–standing interest in the nature of local communities and how their history is recorded through vernacular crafts and practices. Through research of local history and customs, she seeks out arcane and often neglected information with which she aims to rediscover the forgotten character of a place. Applying this research–based practice to her time in residence Blue anticipates weaving these local elements of craft, history and folklore into a series of collaborative re–enactment and site–specific works. Her work has been shown extensively across the UK and northern Europe.
