Collins, Hannah - filming things New in plastic!
Hannah Collins was born in London in 1956. From 1989 to 2010 she lived and worked in Barcelona, and today lives between London and Almeria, Spain. Collins has received many awards including a Fulbright Scholarship and was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1993.
Her body of work includes photographs, films, written texts and books. She is known for her work in expanding the fields of photography and film. Her works are embedded in historical and social frameworks with a wide range of subjects and geographical locations. Her involvement in a body of work often continues over many years.
In 2015 a retrospective of her work was shown at the Sprengel Museum Hannover, in conjunction with the award of the Spectrum Prize. The exhibition traveled to Camden Art Centre London and Baltic Centre Newcastle. In addition to the Hannover retrospective publication, Collins’ last book was The Fragile Feast (2011). In 2019 her recent digital slide show created with musician Duncan Bellamy was shown at the Tapies Foundation Barcelona and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In 2020 Hannah Collins curated the exhibition We Will Walk - Art and Resistance in the American South at Turner Contemporary in Margate UK.
“Profoundly democratic, Collins’s work quietly insists on revealing the complexities of life, and the ways we relate to the world around us collectively and as individuals, through vision and memory, to achieve works of subtle power.” Sprengel Museum Hannover, 2015
