BIO & CV
Callum Diffey (b.1997) is a multi-disciplinary artist currently based in Glasgow. Their practice utilises photography, sculpture, painting and video. Toeing the line between sensitivity and brutality, their work investigates dichotomies of pain and pleasure, the sacred and profane, collective memory and trauma. Themes of identity as well as the beauty found in the debased are a constant source of interrogation. When two opposing ideas or feelings are whole or experienced simultaneously.
“Diary,” an autobiographical, documentary project, draws on narratives of interpersonal relationships, hedonism and experiences with Borderline Personality Disorder.
Visually referencing motifs present within queer and internet subcultures, Callum’s work becomes a collage of different symbols aiming to challenge fixed interpretations, creating situations where everyday objects are altered or detached from their original context, where the personal becomes universal.
