Head to the Universal Building Vitrines, Goods Way in King’s Cross to see Nathaniel Rackowe’s work, Deconstructing the Domestic,a series of six sculptures that take inspiration from the urban environment and domestic situations.
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 garden sheds), mixing these with kinetic elements and employing a raw aesthetic that leaves the traces of construction clearly visible.
