Phil Collins

°1970, Runcorn (UK) - lives and works in Berlin (DE) and Cologne (DE)

By means of performance and photographic and video installations, Phil Collins examines how we participate in and understand (mostly) hard-to-reach cultures. Encouraging people to reveal their individuality, Collins invites them to perform for his camera lens in order to capture scenes of intimacy, exhibitionism, and vulnerability. In this way, Collins is especially interested in using the camera as the premise for a performative situation, articulating the nuances of relations embedded in the aesthetic regimes and economies that define everyday existence.

Phil Collins has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at Museum Ludwig in Cologne; Dallas Museum of Art; SFMOMA, San Francisco; and Tate Britain in London. Collins' work has also been included in several group exhibitions at institutions such as MoMA and MoMA PS1 in New York; Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago; Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven; New Museum in New York; and Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. He also participated at the 9th International Istanbul Biennial in 2005 and the 9th Shanghai Biennale in 2012.

His works are represented in the collections of Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York; Tate Collection in London; MoMA in New York; and Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among others. Collins was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2006.
