Beth Collar @ Standpoint Gallery

21 April 2017 - 27 May 2017

The 2016-17 winner of the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award, Beth Collar, opens her exhibition‘Seriously’ marking the end of her year long tenure of the award on 20th April 2017. Collar works in sculpture, drawing, video and text. The main method she employs is an appropriated form of experimental archaeology, a sort of role-play or drag, which she combines with the methods of the prop maker. 
Through engineering scenarios both physical and mental: the blacksmith; the witch; the medium; the medieval sculptor; beings are embodied and things are made: a forged spearhead; performance to camera; etching or sculpture; a replica velociraptor claw; a text; a bouncy, rubber severed head. Collar combines the authentic with the authentic-looking, being interested in and troubled by the fine line that the figure of the ‘artist’ also embodies.
