This Wednesday at STUDIO VISITS is Brian Collier! Brian’s projects, installations, and public interventions range across a wide variety of media, including websites, video, sculpture, photography, drawing, artist’s books, and performance. Through this diverse practice he focuses on ways in which elements of the non-human natural world exist, or have reinserted themselves, in severely human-altered habitats. Through his projects he disseminates information about these sites, proposing strategies to re-evaluate the weedy margins of the human-dominated landscape and our role in shaping this version of nature. He is founder and president of The Society for a Re-Natural Environment.
Collier earned his MFA from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his BFA from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Collier was born in Bay Shore, NY in 1970 and currently lives and works in Bloomington, IL. Check out more about his work here http://www.verysmallobjects.com/
