Artist Talk: Karin Ruggaber

Karin Ruggaber, Relief #137, 2018. Concrete, pigments. On loan from the Artist

Karin Ruggaber will talk about her recent explorations into weather, thunderstorms, making sculpture, figuration and expression. Her practice centres on our experiences, our imagination and fantasies around materials. In her work, Ruggaber investigates processes and larger ordering systems, through exploring the instinctual and haptic knowledge embedded in our interactions with them.

Karin Ruggaber makes sculpture as well as producing artist’s books. Coming out of a studio-based practice, her work uses aspects of figuration and ornamentation. She is interested in the translation of pictorial principles into sculpture, and how imaginary space materialises within sculptural language and public spaces.

Karin Ruggaber has held solo exhibitions at greengrassi, London; Walter Knoll, London; PEER, London; Art Now, Tate Britain, and group exhibitions at La Casa Encendida, Madrid; CCA, Andratx; MUDAM, Luxembourg; Museo Marino Marini, Florence; Artists Space, New York; Camden Arts Centre, London and Bloomberg SPACE, London. Her work was included in The British Art Show 7 at Nottingham Contemporary; and Hayward Gallery, London (touring exhibition). She is recipient of an Abbey Fellowship Award at the British School, Rome in 2019.
