Sculpture supported by the Yoma Sasburg Estate - Winner 2013
Rachael Champion (b. 1982, New York, USA) graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art from the Royal Academy Schools in 2010. Champion has been awarded the Arts Foundation Award for sculpture (2013) and the Red Mansion Art Prize (2010). In 2012 she was the Camden Arts Centre ‘Artist in Residence’. In 2017 Champion will complete a permanent installation on Sarvisalo, The Zabludowicz Collection’s outpost in Finland.
Rachael Champion’s site-specific sculptures and installations are engaged in a discourse surrounding the dependent yet unclear relationship between industry, technology and nature. Her works consist of large scale constructions and dramatic architectural interventions that question the shifting interactions humanity has with the natural world and considers their boundaries, separations and progressive implications. Through manipulating information from diverse influences that include architecture, agriculture, raw materials, municipal infrastructure, public space and ecology, Champion questions the layered and dynamic complexities of our shifting physical environment.
