Louise Colbourne graduated from the Slade in 2006 with an MFA in sculpture. She has exhibited her work internationally and developed a number of curatorial projects, to include the Big screen and Film Gallery at the Latitude festival.
Colbourne works primarily with film, video and sculpture, often embellishing the mundane with a visually monumental presence. The work has a ‘make-do and mend’ aesthetic combining humour with a more ominous content… There is also a strong sense of physicality through the movement of the figure, sculptural forms and the camera motion itself. Repetition in much of Colbourne’s work begins, with a certain temporal overlap, which echos and resonates according to an almost musical rhythm.
