Colin Higginson's art practice incorporates sculpture, installation, model making, photography, film and performance. His artwork is motivated by an interest in history, memory and representation, particularly in how meaning and value is constructed through narrative and artifice. Having an interest in archeology he has spent time working in the context of museums and public archives where he has developed an ongoing fascination with the relationship between the sculptural object and archival images, photographs and film. He uses the making of sculpture and methods of display to mediate this relationship and to open up alternate narratives.
Recent work has focused on the compelling forms and structures of crystals, rocks and stones, creating objects that imitate nature exploring notions of authenticity and the mundane.
