About

Based in Aachen, Germany.

Francesca Larkin (b. 1991) is a Taiwanese-British artist based in Germany. Originally trained in painting, Francesca’s work is a synthesis of analog and digital image making processes. She observes and participates in the visual language of internet pop-culture and user generated media—whether it is memes, viral TikTok videos, app filters or Instagram reels. Daily, she immerses herself into the torrent of internet imagery, scavenging for banalized memes and visual oddities from niche and forgotten corners of the internet. Offline, but not AFK, these image artefacts are repurposed into digitally drawn portrayals of our post-digital selves as recorded in an age of digital ubiquity.
