Deconstructing the Domestic

Nathaniel Rackowe (UK)

LUMIERE LONDON 2018

A series of six sculptures, structured especially for Lumiere London 2018.

Nathaniel Rackowe’s work, Deconstructing the Domestic took inspiration from the urban environment and domestic situations. The piece was presented at the Universal Building in Kings Cross for Lumiere London 2018.

The British sculptor is based in London, and his interest in neon reflects the light sources of such urban landscapes. Often creating large-scale structures, he uses recognisable man-made materials (such as scaffolding and shed doors), mixing these with kinetic elements and employing a raw aesthetic that leaves wiring clearly visible.

A graduate of Sheffield Hallam University and Slade School of Fine Art, in 2015 Rackowe presented solo shows at Lawrie Shabibi in Dubai and Jérôme Pauchant in Paris. Art fairs include solo booths at Art Basel/Miami and Art Cologne. Rackowe has also been commissioned by Calvin Klein Collection in New York and Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art in Copenhagen.

You could also see another of Rackowe’s sculptures Square Prism on the facade of The Royal British Society of Sculptors at 108 Old Brompton Road, Kensington.
