Emilie Collins

Artist

I am an artist currently based near Paris whose public work encompasses a broad range of themes, principally dealing with issues relating to the body, the self, the environment, space and the notion of 'the other', which are approached from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Journeys and initiations are a crucial recuring theme in my work which mainly revolves around the form of site specific or site responsive art. A concern for connection with people and places lies at the heart of my work, along with a need to make and experiment with materials and spaces. My work has so far taken the form of installations, private rituals or performances involving the public that can be either created and displayed on their own or in combination.

I also write, draw and experiment with materials in a more private way, as a release and means of playing.
