Caroline Pick is an award-winning documentary film-maker and TV commissioning editor. She executive produced the BAFTA award winning BBC2 series 40 Minutes and was one of only 3 women at this level at the BBC. She was later a Commissioning Editor for BBC and Channel 4 where she specialised in discovering and working with emerging film-makers. She also taught documentary at the National Film and Television School. Her films depict radical ways of changing society via human interest stories. Pick has also taught yoga and meditation in her own yoga school in London for 20 years. She then studied Fine Art at Central St. Martin’s School of Art (BA) and Brighton University (MA) and is now a sculptor. Her pieces are included in international collections in Italy and Germany and she has exhibited frequently in London and the South East, where she lives and works.
In her installations in 2022/2023 Caroline Pick creates surprising, playful worlds with a joyous use of colourful, everyday objects and materials, re-purposed to make us smile and question the world we live in. She brings into being immersive, spacious environments, mashing up ideas of the Anthropocene and decades-long knowledge of film-making, photography and projection with edgy critique. Pick imbues objects with powers to heal and affect us, using ordinary, simple and found objects: feathers, wood and soft materials. Her forms are a little absurd, provisional and improvisatory, reflecting the spontaneity of the process of their making. She juxtaposes her materials to make profound, sometimes funny, rather odd pieces, animations and environments. She is led by the process. She is a joyful thorn in your side.
