Born in 1963 in New York.
She has studied at The School of Visual Arts in New York; she lives in Brooklyn nowadays. Her photographs condense fictional elements and a certain realism. Collier Schorr is interested in many fields such as nature, fashion, advertising, and sports. Her work questions established social and historical norms.
Le Consortium presents her Arrangements, a series of work made in the south of Germany, in Schwabish Gmünd. These flower compositions are created within six minutes, the maximum amount of time before which flowers start to wilt and see their colors fade. These are therefore a very spontaneous affair, the last witnesses of installations the artist destroys right after she shot the images. The flowers are secretly picked in neighboring gardens. Rootlessness, frailty, life and death are conjured up in these works, as so many concepts symbolically evocative of the Second World War.
