Florence Iff

Amalgamated Fragmentations/Plastiverse 4 (2021, detail).

For the last 20 years, Florence Iff has mainly worked on the subject of the Anthropocene – a proposed geological epoch dating from the commencement of significant human impact on Earth’s geology and ecosystems, including, but not limited to, anthropogenic climate change. Her way of working is not merely classical; Iff is interested in what lies behind the surface of a plane picture, including different experimental techniques as well as installations. With found objects and photographs, she uses various analogue and digital techniques to playfully construct images that address the most pressing issue of our time: the sixth mass extinction event.
