Nathaniel Rackowe

Nathaniel Rackowe (b. 1975) is an artist based in London, UK. Spanning public art, installation, sculpture, photography, and painting, his works are abstracted impressions of today’s metropolitan experience, evoked through the vicissitudes of light as it fluctuates throughout the city. As such, his large-scale, urban-influenced structures and light sculptures are designed to recreate the experience of navigating the city around us. Inspired by modernism, film, and video games, Rackowe uses the mass-manufactured derivative products of the modernist era – glass, corrugated plastics, concrete, scaffolding, breeze blocks, and strip lights – to recreate the collective experience and visual sensations of urban contemporary life, while incorporating a deeply personal emotional response to passing through built spaces. Recent exhibitions include Passing Through, FOLD Gallery, London, UK (2021); Luminous Territories, Alserkal Avenue, Dubai, UAE (2019); The Shape of a City, Letitia Gallery, Beirut, Lebanon (2018); Black Shed Expanded, Parasol Unit, London, UK (2016); and Edge Lands, Galerie Jérôme Pauchant, Paris, France (2014). His works are part of several permanent collections, including VR d’Affaux Collection, Paris, France; Vente Privée, Paris, France; Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO), Miami, US; and the Museum of Modern Art, Lima, Peru.
