Annabel McCourt is an international contemporary artist from Grimsby. Her work ranges from lens-based gritty social-realism, through to public & installation art, moving image and architectural interventions inspired by fact, folklore & legend. Whatever the medium, McCourt tends to work on a vast, almost carnivalesque scale, infusing dystopian concepts with mordant.
