Angela Bulloch


Canada, 1966. Lives in Berlin

Angela Bulloch graduated from Goldsmith’s College in 1988 and was included the same year in the Freeze exhibition, curated by Damien Hirst, which launched the career of many British artists of her generation. Her work has focused on structures of social organisation, often taking the form of viewer activated installations. Her Drawing Machines, for instance, respond to the movements of the visitor in the exhibition space, and other works include chairs one has to sit on, or doormats one has to step on to trigger a soundtrack or a speech. Sound has always played an important part in her work, and almost always featured in her installations; she has often collaborated with musicians.
