About Mat Collishaw
Mat Collishaw is a contemporary artist based in London. A key figure in the first generation of Young British Artists which emerged from Goldsmiths’ College in the late 1980s, he participated in their first exhibition Freeze (1988) and has since exhibited widely internationally.

Throughout his 30-year career, Collishaw has worked across photography, video, sound, and sculpture, often combining media in immersive, multi-part installations to build layered narratives. Blurring the lines between seduction and repulsion, observation and exploitation, reality and artifice, his work questions how we perceive and are influenced by the world today through images, and modern technology.

Collishaw’s works have been exhibited in numerous museums and are represented in many public and private collections globally.
