 About the Artist

Much of the filming for Phil Coy’s new video commission Avoiding Green took place in Hull and Scarborough. The work explores a hitherto little known history of a small, but global, army of knitters, both at sea and onshore. The work explores the relationship between these largely overlooked cogs in the global economy, and evokes the sea from their wildly different perspectives. Avoiding Green focuses particularly on the Gansey, as a specialized working garment worn by seafarers from around the coastal towns of England, Scotland and Holland.

Commissioned for Offshore by Invisible Dust in partnership with Hull Culture and Leisure with thanks to Dr Magnus Johnson, Centre for Environmental and Marine Sciences, University of Hull

Phil Coy is currently Leverhulme Artist in Residence at RAL Space – The UK’s centre for Space Science and Satellite Observation.

Phil’s work explores the languages, materiality and histories of representation often feeding back the structural processes involved in making work into its presentation. His methodology incorporates a wide range of media, including single screen film, video installation, horticulture, pilgrimages, public consultation, archive materials, embedded architectural installation, photography, sound, generative performance, readings, print, self publishing and text works.

Recent exhibitions include Green Ray, Wilkinson Gallery, London (2016), Being Boring, The Living Art Museum, Reykjavik, Iceland (2016); nothing is as dark as the memory of darkness, Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2016) and a new permanent public commission for Caledonian Road, London (2016). Focal Point Gallery, Southend (2015); and screenings: Alchemy Film Festival, Scotland (2016), Swedenborg Film Festival (2016); 59th BFI London Film Festival (2015), He is currently Leverhulme Artist in Residence at RAL Space – The UK’s centre for Space Science and Satellite Observation.
