"Barff has a longstanding interest in making sculpture that is driven from history, science and storytelling. Mapping her way through a journey of investigation and finding meaning by stitching together significant historical facts and overlooked practices, materials and techniques. She explores through communications and conversations with people that span a wide demographic. Since her graduation from Goldsmiths College in 1999, she has created an eccentric menagerie of sculptures that take on a presence of animal, human, or something in-between. Her work suggests the complexity of life as well as the mythologies, superstitions and vanities that underpin it the shadowy 'other' within us all." Freeny Yianni, Close Ltd
