AboutTintype is delighted to announce that our project space artist for 2014 is Beth Collar. Tintype Project Space is an annual event in which an artist is invited to use the gallery as a studio or working space followed by a show.
Beth Collar works with video, sound, drawing and performance. Her practice questions the construction of a collective historical consciousness and the desire to commune with pasts both real and imagined. Collar's performances ' sometimes enacted in front of effigies or piles of earth ' draw the audience into a vividly drawn narrative, snaking through the violent histories embedded in landscapes such as the East Anglian Fens.
