A collection of books relating to the work of Ingrid Pollard, was created for Honiton Library and will be available to view in the library between 6th August and 29th October 2022. The display forms part of a programme of activity commissioned by talking on corners, which also features an exhibition of new work by the artist at THG (Thelma Hubert Gallery).
Ingrid Pollard is a leading contemporary British artist. She is a photographer, media artist and researcher. She is a graduate of the London College of Printing and Derby University and in 2022 was one of four artists nominated for the Turner Prize.
Pollard's contributions to art during her career have broken new ground and forged pathways for younger generations, shaping Britain's understanding and histories of art, society and culture. Ingrid has developed a social practice concerned with representation, history and landscape with reference to race, difference and the materiality of lens based media. Her work is included in numerous collections including Tate, UK Arts Council and the Victoria & Albert Museum. She lives and works in Northumberland, UK.
