Biography

Morag Colquhoun's recent work includes video, sculpture, installation, text and performance. She often works site-specifically with communities in environmental contexts and is interested in developing work that emerges from a zone of uncertainty, exchange and dialogue. In People are Still the Same, a project supported by Safle, Colquhoun explored the construction of a contentious gas pipeline across South Wales with anti-pipeline protesters and local people. She combined renewable energy technologies with digital audio and video in artworks that probed the developing uncertainties of the fossil fuel era in relation to the archaic, the technological, the natural and the cultural.
