About Ed Atkins

Ed Atkins (*1982, Oxford, United Kingdom) is an artist who makes videos, writes and draws, developing a complex and deeply figured discourse around definition, wherein the impossibilities for sufficient representations of the physical, specifically corporeal, world — from computer generated imagery to bathetic poetry — are hysterically rehearsed. He studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London between 2007 and 2009. Atkins has participated in numerous group exhibitions in international galleries and institutions including the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in Turin, New Museum in New York, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, and the Serpentine Galleries in London. The artist has also presented solo exhibitions at the MMK in Frankfurt, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, MoMA PS1 in New York, Tate Britain in London, and the Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin. Atkins lives and works in Berlin.
