Using light, kinetic elements, and common industrial materials British artist Nathaniel Rackowe makes large-scale works that animate architectural spaces and transform viewers into active participants. His sculptural works are often made of low-tech 'functional' materials that explore the boundaries of the physical spaces that surround them. Building upon Minimalism's attention to the relationship between viewer, object, and space, Nathaniel's works display a shifting relationship to their environment, exposing otherwise unseen dimensions, visual and temporal, giving these abstract entities physical form. The works question the steadfastness of the built environment, testing its margins and suggesting inventive and alternate paths of movement.
Alongside a new sculptural work, Block Tower (2008) Nathaniel Rackowe will show previously unseen photographs that explore through registrations of scale the structural possibilities of his sculptures, and a video work that draws together previously separate footage from a number of installations that span the artist's career.
Nathaniel Rackowe lives and works in London, he is represented by Bischoff/Weiss, London and Galerie Almine Rech, Paris. Recent exhibitions include RP3 at the Economist Plaza, London (2007) and Artificial Light at Richmond, Virginia and Miami Museum of Contemporary Art, USA (2006), while current projects include a large scale commission for the McLaren Technology Center in Woking.
