Henry Collins
The Complete Works on Shakespeare

To commemorate 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare (23rd of April). All 40 books of Shakespeare’s books have been used as canvas’s, source material, inspiration. Transforming the 1950’s Yale editions into an episodic sculpture and film which explores the wonderful language of Shakespear and the artistic one of myself.

As William said, Action is eloquence!

I’ve uploaded the video of my adaptation of ‘The Two Gentlemen of Verona’, one of Shakespeare’s early works. I decided to totally ignore the story and instead, like Shakespeare does in this particular play, explore some themes (or processes/treatments in my case) that will recur in future work.
