Fiona Clark was born in Taranaki, New Zealand in 1954. She graduated from the University of Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Arts in 1975. Her photographs provide access to crucial forms of social history, often investigating the politics of gender, identity and body. Clark is also a central member of Friends of Waitara River Inc., an environmental organization that campaigns to protect the quality of water in Waitara river and immediate surrounding areas. In 2016 she has taken part in presentations at Artspace, SIART 9 Biennale at Museo Nacional de Arte in Bolivia and Michael Lett. Recent group exhibitions include Wunderrūma at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki (2015) and Bloom at the Dowse, Lower Hutt (2011). Between 2002-2006 Clark exhibited a series of solo exhibitions, titled GO GIRL, at public art institutions across Australasia, including at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery (2006), Whangarei Art Museum (2005) and Govett-Brewster Art Gallery (2002). Clark currently lives and works in Tikorangi, Taranaki, New Zealand.
