Dialogues

Rachael Champion’s site-specific sculptures and installations are engaged in a discourse surrounding the dependant, 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. Champion questions the layered and dynamic complexities of our shifting physical environment through manipulating information from diverse influences that include brutalist architecture, agriculture, raw materials, municipal infrastructure, public space and ecology.

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. Her work has been exhibited in numerous recognised international spaces including Modern Art Oxford (UK), Zabludowicz Collection, London (UK), Socrates Sculpture Park, New York (US), Bold Tendencies, London (UK), Enclave Projects, London (UK), and Art Basel, (HK). She has also exhibited in a number of artist-run spaces, and unconventional site-specific locations including Fokidos 21, Athens (GR), Tannery Arts, London (UK), Wirksworth, Derbyshire (UK), Nine Elms, London (UK), and Burlington Gardens, London (UK). In 2017, Champion will complete a permanent architectural installation on Sarvisalo, the Zabludowicz Collection’s outpost in Finland. She is represented by Hales Gallery London, New York.
