Meet the Artist

Fionnuala Fagan-Thiébot is a musician, installation artist and researcher. Her work investigates the artistic re-telling and dissemination of newly collected oral histories. The primary aim of this work is to increase access to the often forgotten knowledge found in individual experiences, to augment more generalised historical narratives of marginalised communities.

Fionnuala was recently awarded a PhD from the Sonic Arts Research Centre at Queen’s University. Through a creative portfolio and critically reflective writing, this PhD explored how the practices of song-writing, sound design, live performance and installation art could represent oral history narratives found in post-conflict societies.

Fionnuala has recorded four verbatim song albums entitled: Station Flight (2016), Dreaming Protected Me (2013), Stories of the City: Sailortown (collaboration with Isobel Anderson, 2012) and Homebird (2010). These albums are currently archived in the Linenhall Library and the British Library, London.
