Ed Atkins is one of the most prominent artists of his generation, working in video, sound, drawing and writing to develop a discourse around Definition, thinking through digital media's apparent immateriality in relation to its possibilities for precise representations of the physical – and specifically corporeal – world. Cadavers often appear in the videos as surrogates for this dialogue and its implicit subject. The process of making is tangible in each work, creating an awareness in the viewer of the surface of the image and the presence of the apparatuses used to produce it. This spring he presented his largest exhibition to date, Recent Ouija, at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. He was also included in Surround Audience: The New Museum Triennial, New York. In June, he premiered his commission for the Manchester International Festival, Performance Capture, at the Manchester Art Gallery, and in September, presented a new work at the Istanbul Biennial. This Summer he began a DAAD artist-in-residence scholarship in Berlin. Next year he will produce solo projects at SMK Copenhagen; Castello di Rivoli, Torino; The Kitchen, NYC; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Torino; Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, NYC; Cabinet Gallery, London. Atkins graduated with an MA from the Slade School of Art in 2009, and was selected for New Contemporaries in 2010. In 2011 he was included in the group exhibition Time Again at SculptureCentre, New York; co-organised A Dying Artist at The ICA, London; was shortlisted for the Jarman Award, and held a solo show at Cabinet Gallery, London. In the same year he presented a new commission for Frieze Film and Channel 4; and a solo presentation for Art Now at Tate Britain entitled A Tumour (In English); collaborated on a new live event with Haroon Mirza and James Richards in Times Square, New York for Performa 11 entitled An Echo Button. In 2012 he presented solo projects Us Dead Talk Love at Chisenhale Gallery, London, Ein Tumor auf Deutsch at Bonn Kunstverein and Warm, Warm, Warm Spring Mouths at Isabella Bortolozzi Gallerie, Berlin.
