Emilie Collins

Artist

Emilie is an artist currently based in Paris whose 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 her 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 Emilie's work, along with a need to make and experiment with materials and spaces. Her 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. read full statement
