Maureen Paley is pleased to announce a new exhibition by Hannah Collins which will be presented across the gallery’s two London spaces.
Collins’ large-format black-and-white photographs brought her to prominence during the 1980s and led to a Turner Prize nomination in 1993. Her work draws attention to historical and social frameworks and addresses a wide range of subjects and geographical locations through images of interiors, exteriors, interactions, and specific objects. In 2015 a retrospective of her work was shown at the Sprengel Museum Hannover, in conjunction with the award of the Spectrum Prize and travelled to Camden Art Centre, London and Baltic Centre, Newcastle.
One of her most recent works – I will make up a song and sing it in a theatre with the night air above my head, 2018 has been shown at SF MOMA San Francisco, 2019, Tapies Foundation Barcelona, 2019, and at the Rotterdam Film Festival, 2020. She was awarded the 2019 Rose Award for Photography at the Royal Academy of Arts, London for her image depicting Nelson Mandela’s birthplace, The Road to Mvezo. Reading – Umtata, Mandela’s Teenage Home, National Monument, 2007. In 2020 Hannah Collins initiated and curated We Will Walk – Art and Resistance in the American South with Paul Goodwin, at Turner Contemporary in Margate, UK.
A portion of any sales generated from this exhibition will be donated to The Amazon Conservation Team who partner with indigenous and local communities to protect tropical forests and strengthen traditional culture.
