Artist Statement

Clowns, HeLa cells, cassette tapes, funerals, porcelain shards, laughter, diamonds, historic homes, suicides, algorithms, police negotiations, specimens, failed utopias, transcripts and public urinals form a constellation in Crystal Z Campbell’s body of work.
 
Forgotten narratives are remixed and revived with sound, silence, ceramics, film, performance and site-specific installations. Where do the remains of the fibre of history lie?
