Hybridly human, 2021, Framed

This ink drawing is part of the exhibition Who Blows The Horn? featuring London-based artist Phoebe Collings-James, on view December 7, 2021 — February 1, 2022. Her work spans various mediums including drawing, painting, sculpture, sound, video, and performance. 

The works in the show are a meditation on the rhythms of drawing, revealing itself in gouges, ink scrawls, and pooling glazes, across two materially distinct but overlapping aspects of the artist’s practice.

Derived from a poem created during the ritual of a tarot circle, the exhibition’s title Who Blows The Horn? ruminates on the process of becoming and being in relation to self or community. Collings-James traverses a precarious edge, reckoning with the seeking of justice and knowledge, by way of an evocative symbology.

Phoebe Collings-James, b. 1987, lives and works in London. She has shown work internationally, including exhibitions at the Studio Museum in Harlem, 315 Gallery, New York; Arcadia Missa, London; the Venice Biennale; Liste Art Fair, Basel; and most recently a solo show at Camden Art Centre. Collings-James has had performances and screenings at the Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Sonic Acts, Amsterdam; Café Oto, London; and Palais de Tokyo, Paris. She has released original productions with SERAFINE369 and Takuroku Records. Collings-James’ Mudbelly ceramics studio encompasses a shop and a teaching facility offering free ceramics courses for Black people in London, taught by Black ceramicists.
