Collage artist and photographer Seán Hillen has reached a point in his career where he finds it almost impossible to work. Trapped in a small terraced house, full to the brim with junk, unfinished art and boxes of memories, Sean embarks on a journey to declutter and make sense of his life as he awaits the arrival of Amy – an American woman with whom he communicates daily but has never met.

This intimate and fascinating portrait of the effervescent Hillen explores what it’s like to be an artist with Aspergers, having grown up through the Troubles in Northern Ireland, and how he finds inspiration, and a new lease of artistic endeavour in a chaotic world.  

Presented in partnership with Ikon

You can also hear from Sean from the discussion he had with Birmingham-based collage artist and designer Mark Murphy. And if you want to discover more about collage, you can join a live masterclass from Birmingham Collage Collective, exploring the craft of collage and the various different approaches one can take.
