Heather Phillipson is a British artist working with the moving image. A trained violinist and pianist with a parallel practice in poetry, Phillipson combines influences from cinema, literature and the visual arts with what is close at hand, undermining systems of meaning and prescribed associations. In her films, the image is constantly questioned by soundtrack, language and montage. Her work has been exhibited internationally and she has received awards, commissions and residencies. In 2011, Heather Phillipson has shown work at South London Gallery, the ICA (London), Hollybush Gardens (London), Eastside Projects (Birmingham), KG52 (Stockholm), and Halle 14 (Leipzig). Forthcoming projects include live events for the Hackney Film Festival (in association with LUX), Auto Italia and CCA, Newcastle. As an award-winning poet she has been published and broadcasted widely. Her poems have appeared widely in magazines and journals and she has performed across the UK and in Europe.
