Heather Phillipson’s practice mixes images, noises, objects, languages and bodies. Her immersive works are flooded with cultural references and emotional responses, suggesting her close dialogue with ideas and materials. Language plays a fundamental role in Phillipson’s creative processes: in addition to being a celebrated artist she is also an award-winning poet.

Her commission for the Arts Council Collection’s 70th anniversary, TRUE TO SIZE, is a series of video, audio and sculptural works that present a sequence of post-human landscapes.
