The Turner Prize nominee is best known for her large unframed photographs that have the power to create fascinating immersive experiences, and this exhibition is no different. Collins' exciting use of photography, film, and sound manages to convey the emotional and psychological aspects of spaces that have significant cultural and social histories.
Camden Arts Centre exhibition 2015
The show spreads through multiple rooms, beginning with early photography of interior spaces taken in the late 1980s, through to sound installations and photography displays. Collins’ fascination with music and the spoken word is paramount, juxtaposing the music of Noah Purifoy, with verbal accounts by American Pop Artist Ed Ruscha and even the radical Black Panther Party. Don't miss the time-lapse film on display in the Reading Room which shows an abandoned and derelict factory in Northen France, accompanied by voices and music from a local Algerian DJ.
After a long time based in Spain, we are delighted to find Collins back on British soil with her interesting and contemplative way of looking at the world.
