Description

In a career beginning in the 1970s, Colin Campbell (1942–2001) was at the forefront of artists’ video and, for thirty years, continued to invent a unique and personal form and content for the medium. Campbell responded early to video’s invitation to performance and to its ease with sharing secrets. This retrospective exhibition considers the manner in which the artist cultivated a myth around himself and his personae through trafficking in stories, rumours and fables as culled from the goings-on of his everyday life. In blurring truth and lies, real life and artifice, Campbell’s video works suggest links between storytelling, self-construction and star power. Colin Campbell represented Canada at the Venice Biennale in 1980 and at biennial exhibitions in São Paulo in 1977 and Istanbul in 1992. Published on the occasion of a symposium dedicated to the legacy of Colin Campbell.
