Charlotte Prodger (b. 1974) lives in Glasgow and works with moving image, sculpture, photography, drawing, and writing. Prodger won the 2018 Turner Prize and represented Scotland at La Biennale di Venezia 2019. She received a 2022 MacDowell Fellowship, a 2017 Paul Hamlyn Foundation award, and the 2014 Margaret Tait Commission. The monograph Charlotte Prodger: Selected Works (Walther Koenig, 2022) documents a decade of her visual art practice. She teaches at De Ateliers, in Amsterdam, and Zurich University of the Arts.
Broadly, Prodger’s work orbits histories, from the weight of deep geological time to contingent forms of narrative, such as anecdote and oral history. Her trilogy of films—Stoneymollan Trail (2015), BRIDGIT (2016), and SaF05 (2019)—explores the intertwined relationships of the body, landscape, language, technology, and time. At Radcliffe, she is looking at specialist practices of conservation and preservation through the prism of queer subjectivity.
Prodger has exhibited her work internationally, including at Bergen Kunsthall; the Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery, at Wesleyan University; Kunst Museum Winterthur; Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Dusseldorf; Monash University Museum of Art; National Galleries of Scotland; the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago; SculptureCenter, in New York; Secession, in Vienna; Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam; Tate Britain; and Yale Center for British Art. Her films have been screened at numerous film festivals, including the BFI London Film Festival, Bucharest International Experimental Film Festival, Courtisane festival, Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen, New York Film Festival, Seoul International New Media Festival, TIFF, and VIFF.
