About me:

“I want something from you. I want to know where you are, how you got there, who you think you are and who you’d like to be. I collect pieces of people and build myself among them.”

 

Combining research interests in representations of identity along with a need to implicate and validate my own creative practice, my work often uses identification documentation or recounted experiences as a starting point. By stealing other peoples’ stories or place in the world, I use a cuckoo approach to creating identity, injecting myself into what was someone else’s narrative. Books, business cards, stories and memories become realms within which I can exist.

Caitlin Griffiths won the Worcster Open Prize in 2010 for her video work 2 into 1 (After Gillian Wearing) and is currently curator at The Public in West Bromwich (www.thepublic.com) and Artistic Director of Hereford Photography Festival (www.photofest.org).
