Born 1974. Lives and works in Glasgow.
Charlotte Prodger studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London. She received an MFA from Glasgow School of Art in 2010.
The artist works primarily with 16mm film, writing and photography. She uses near-obsolete materials in a queer exploration of reproduction, playing with the tension between language and material. Prodger frequently uses verbal anecdotes as a starting point in her work, investigating the ways in which these orally-transmitted narratives transmutate throughtime and space. Her work with 16mm film echoes the fragility of half-hidden subcultural moments and she uses its material properties as rigorous formal parameters.
