Anna-Lena Dubé Fuller b.1981 B.A, M.Phil
Anna-Lena is an Irish-Trinidadian artist living and working in London. She uses sculpture to tackle the questions she feels passionate about, including gender and the body in society. Her pieces appear surreal, combinations of clothing and flesh, provoking reactions of humour and horror, however as an Irish artist Anna-Lena sees her work in the tradition of Dorothy Cross and Alice Maher. Much of her sculpture uses clothing and direct references to the body such as teeth, sometimes combining biological elements like fur with mixed media constructions.
Anna-Lena was raised in a small town on the outskirts of Dublin where she was the only person of colour in her school. From a young age she knew she wanted to be an artist however after finishing her degree in Fine Art she travelled the world and tried her hand at several other things before her interest in feminism led her to study Gender and Women’s Studies in Trinity College Dublin. She moved to London in 2015 to pursue her passion in art and to experience the cultural offerings of the city.
