Artist Interview | Carl Slater

Carl Slater (b. 1981, Cornwall) uses collage and video to re-narrate contested histories. Sourcing fragments from private and public archives, Slater shifts the authorship of source content by layering and reordering it to create new meanings. Slater’s work for Atlantic, Echoic Candy (4-bar), reinstates a time and place within the heart of ‘The Warehouse’ (Millenium Building), drawing upon video archives and hyperreality to evoke a collective experience of counter-culture and mass euphoria. Find out more about the artist and his work in our artist interview which you can read here.
