Anna Higgins

Anna Higgins (B. 1991 Melbourne, Australia) lives and works in London, UK.

Anna Higgins’ image-based practice incorporates found archival and contemporary material that is abstracted and re-contextualized through methods of collage, painting and film photography to form new perspectives and poetic interpretations. Anna’s work explores the nature of images and how the mind makes sense of visual information that is not fully formed.

Anna completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at the Victorian College of the Arts (2013). She graduated in 2023 from the post-graduate program at the Royal Academy Schools, London.

Recent solo exhibitions include Omens, ReadingRoom, Melbourne (2021), Faraway Beach, Mackintosh Lane, London (2019), The Sick Rose, David, Melbourne (2019), International Waters, Centre of Contemporary Photography, Melbourne (2016) Double Negative, Substation, Melbourne (2015), Ma, 3331 Chiyoda, Tokyo (2014) Super Panavision, West Space, Melbourne (2014) and Higgs Boson, TCB art inc, Melbourne (2013).
