Elliot Collins

The Reckless Pilgrim

02 — 24 June, 2017

Artist Elliot Collins makes broad, contemplative pilgrimages in his own country, roaming widely and finding moments of significance in abundance. If there is a recklessness in this activity, it is perhaps found in a commitment to the poetics of indeterminate wandering. As Collins suggests, it is “a journey, not the journey.” If it were the journey it would likely constitute tourism, or enacting someone else’s concept of travel.
