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.

With texts by Jon Davies and John Greyson.
