Heather Phillipson uses the structure of close-up pillow talk and casual camerawork to engage a dog in intimate digressions. The dog becomes an involuntary participant in human impositions – emotional, physical, linguistic and political.
Heather Phillipson works across video, sculpture, drawing, music, text and live events. Through collisions of image, noise, objects, language and bodies, Phillipson's videos and sculptural installations behave as places, musical scores, poems and nervous systems. She has recently held solo shows at Whitechapel Gallery, London; Images Festival, Toronto and the 32nd Sao Paolo Biennale (all 2016). Her work was featured as part of Frieze New York's Frieze Projects Programme (2016) and she has also produced moving image commissions for Channel 4 Television's Random Acts strand and The Arts Council collection, as part of their 70th birthday celebrations. Phillipson is also an award-winning poet, with publications by Faber and Faber, Bloodaxe and Penned in the Margins, and was named a Next Generation Poet in 2014.
