Lives and works in London 

Language, psychoanalysis, socio-political constructions of gender and identity are at the heart of Colbert’s practice. Spanning film, photography, ceramics and sculpture, she questions narrative structures and storytelling, weaving surreal and fantastical mise-en-scène in a documentarian approach to characters, figures and people. Fiction becomes a way to approach the truth and the most intimate emotions. Straddling the thin line between fine art and film, Colbert’s films have strong philosophical undertones and play on questions of time, space and identity, often dark and surreal with a hint of comedy.
