Beth Collar

Beth Collar works around and between sculpture and performance. The sculptures often deal closely with forms of the human body, signifying the sculptural potential of the individual, and literary archetypes that deal with family relationships, gender issues, emotional, and cognitive behaviour. In 2019 solo shows included 'Daddy Issues' at Dilston Grove commissioned by Matt's Gallery and Southwark Park Galleries and 'Retrogression' a collaborative exhibition with Eoghan Ryan at 427 in Riga, Latvia. Other solo presentations have been at Waldo @Mathew Gallery, New York, Matt’s Gallery, London, Primary, Nottingham all in 2018, at Standpoint, London in 2017 and at Fig2 at the ICA in London 2015. Her recent group exhibitions have been at A PLUS A, Venice, The Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, Kunsthal ved siden af, Svendborg, Denmark, Bärenzwinger, Berlin, Cell Project Space, London and KW, Berlin. Performances have taken place at Bob Shop, Berlin, Cafe Oto, London, Kunstverein München, Serpentine, London, Cubitt, London, Nottingham Contemporary and Raven Row, London. She is an artist in residence with the charity Waterloo Uncovered who use archaeology and the structures surrounding it to help veterans with mental health injuries recover.
