'Imago', Caitlin Griffiths, video still, 2011
Caitlin Griffiths is an artist based in the West Midlands. 

“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.”

Central to each work that Griffiths produces is the idea of exchange: written fictions are bourne from other’s memories, sketches and signatures make record of new introductions and chance meetings and video works show conversations as acts of shared catharsis. In her moving image work in particular, the complex ideas of voice and ownership reflect something very personal to the artist as she often uses her art as a type of therapy.

Her work has been exhibited in the UK and in Europe.

Griffiths gained her BA (Hons) in Fine Art from The University of Reading on 2001, having spent a semester at Mason Gross School of the Arts in NJ, USA studying Video Art & Politics under the seminal feminist artist Martha Rosler. In 2006 she gained her MPhil from The University of Birmingham, where her thesis focused on the work of British artist film-makers Isaac Julien and Steve McQueen.

Born 1977 Birmingham, UK. Continues to live and work in Birmingham UK
