BALTIC Bites: Ingrid Pollard

Publication Date 18 Mar 2019

BALTIC is delighted to present the second BALTIC Artists’ Award, a worldwide biennial art award judged solely by artists. Three internationally renowned artist-judges, Lubaina Himid, Michael Rakowitz and Haegue Yang, have each selected an artist who has the opportunity to realise new work which will be seen in this four-month exhibition.

Ingrid Pollard (born 1953, Guyana) uses photographs, prints, moving image and audio to uncover the layered histories of representation. Melding together ephemera with iconic images; the English with the African, it makes visible the invisible, to reveal in her words ‘what we always knew was there’. While investigating race, ethnicity and public spaces she has developed work juxtaposing landscape and portraiture which provide a context for issues of migration, family and home. Selected by Lubaina Himid.

In this BALTIC Bites video Ingrid is in conversation with Lubaina Himid.
