Ed Atkins

Ed Atkins (b. 1982, Oxford) lives and works in London. He earned his MA from the Slade School of Art in 2009. His works in video, sound, drawing and writing explore digital media’s apparent immateriality in relation to its possibilities for precise representations of the physical and corporeal world. The process of making is tangible in his work, creating an awareness in the viewer of the surface of the image and the presence of the apparatuses used to produce it. Atkins was commissioned by Frieze Film and Channel 4 for a solo presentation for Art Now at Tate Britain entitled A Tumour (In English). In 2012, he won the inaugural Tomorrow Never Knows video commission from Film and Video Umbrella and Jerwood Projects, London, and was one of eight recipients of the Paul Hamlyn Award. Selected Solo exhibitions include projects for: MoMA PS1, New York (2013); Isabella Bortolozzi Galerie, Berlin (2013); Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin (2013); Chisenhale Gallery, London (2012); Bonn Kunstverein (2012); and for Cabinet Gallery, London (2011). Selected Group exhibitions include: Frozen Lakes, Artist Space, New York (2013); Time Again, Sculpture Center, New York (2011);  A Dying Artist,The ICA, London (2011); and Bloomberg New Contemporaries, London (2010).
Ed Atkins is represented by Cabinet Gallery, London and by Isabella Bortolozzi Galerie, Berlin.
