Place(s) of work: Glasgow (gb)
Born in 1970 in Runcorn, England, Phil Collins makes art that investigates our ambivalent relationship with the camera as both an instrument of attraction and manipulation, of revelation and shame. He often operates within forms of low-budget television and reportage-style documentary to address the discrepancy between reality and its representations. In his projects, Collins creates unpredictable situations and his irreverent and intimate engagement with his subjects – a process he describes as ‘a cycle of no redemption’ – is as important for his practice as the final presentation in the gallery.
A 2006 finalist for the Tate Museum’s Turner Prize, Collins has been the subject of exhibitions at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, the San Francisco Museum of Art, and Tate Britain.
