Nathaniel Rackowe

Beirut: 01/09/09 — 30/11/09

Designed to interact with the environment in which they are situated, Nathaniel Rackowe’s large scale architectural structures are built using light, kinetic elements and common industrial materials.

Drawing on Minimalism’s attention to the relationship between viewer, object, and space, and fusing the structural codes and material outcomes of Modernism, Nathaniel’s works transports the viewer from passive observer to participant, exposing the otherwise unseen dimensions of visual and temporal spaces. 

Born in 1975, Nathaniel graduated from the Slade with a M.F.A in sculpture. He has exhibited his work internationally, including Galerie Almine Rech (Paris), the Economist Plaza (Contemporary Art Society, London), the Institute of Contemporary Art (London), Chisenhale Gallery (London), MoCA (Miami), and Duve (Berlin).

Nathaniel's residency took place in Beirut, Lebanon.
