For Sweepings, Ellie Collins’ diverse narratives are the catalyst for sound, film and assemblage with thematic cohesion in colour, texture, proximity and form.
Collins favours institutional spaces where she can respond intuitively to features such as carpet, ledges and radiators.
Sweeping on carpet is frustrating and certain to end in at least partial failure. Embracing futility, the artist rejects ease or perfection in place of something richer, more abstruse and irregular.
