More of this artist
Born in 1965 in Darvel, Ayrshire, Scotland, Christine Borland lives and works near Glasgow. Borland’s practice negotiates the fine line between art, ethics and bio-politics. She gathers her source material out of extensive investigations into medical and forensic institutions and practices, often collecting disturbing information that is not readily available to the public. Borland does not merely expose her findings within the gallery but creates deeply poetic works that reinvest the clinical data she uses with a human dimension. Given the sensitive nature of her work, Borland has devised a precise set of moral guidelines, analogous to the Code of Medical Ethics, which serves to frame her practice and determine her choice of materials.
Christine Borland has recently presented solo exhibitions at Ormeau Baths Gallery, Belfast (2009), Newlyn Art Gallery, Pezance (2007), Galeria Toni Tapies, Barcelona (2006), The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh touring to The Collection (2006), Musee Royal de Mariemont, Mariemont (2005) and Lisson Gallery, London (2004). Her work has been shown internationally in numerous museums and large-scale exhibitions, including ““The Greenroom: Reconsidering the Documentary and Contemporary Art”, Hessel Museum of Art & Center for Curatorial Studies Galleries at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson (2008), the Lyon Biennial (2001), “Manifesta 2: European Biennale of Contemporary Art”, Luxembourg (1998) and “Munster Sculpturen Projekte 3”, Munster (1997). In 1997, she was nominated for The Turner Prize at Tate Britain, London.
