James McColl

Job Title: 





I’m an artist, writer and researcher based in the North West whose work is often the intersection of other collaborators. So much of what I do is with people and what I want is to make art with others. My goal is to make work in which the individual isn’t lost but is not the focal point.

I'd describe my work as the seeking out of others and coming together around an object, idea or cause. Sometimes my work can be film, abstract text or performance, this usually comes later and depends on who I’m working with. All my most recent work has been the result of long research periods.

By working with other artists, I’ve investigated ways of being together that disrupt the individualisation of creative practices. I want to know how people could work together better, more honestly and with more listening, mutuality and understanding.
