British artist Hannah Collins (born London, 1956) is known for her large unframed photographs and installations that create immersive spatial experiences.

About

The exhibition reveals Collins' capacity to convey the emotional and psychological aspects of spaces steeped in cultural and social history. It introduces a selection of the artist’s vast unframed prints whose physical scale and materiality envelopes the viewer. Spanning her career to date, these works include interior scenes of apparent inhabitation, incorporating notions of loss, time and transformation. Also presented is The Fertile Forest 2013-15, an installation of photographs of indigenous plants taken by Collins during periods spent with Cofan and Inga tribes in the Amazon basin. The photographs are displayed in sculptural vitrines as a horizontal stream of images, with writings by the artist recounting her physical and spiritual journeys made in the forest.

This exhibition is organised in association with Camden Arts Centre, London.
