Head to the Universal Building Vitrines, Goods Way in King’s Cross to see Nathaniel Rackowe’s work, Deconstructing the Domestic, which takes 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 shed doors), mixing these with kinetic elements and employing a raw aesthetic that leaves wiring clearly visible.
A graduate of Sheffield Hallam University and Slade School of Fine Art, in 2015 Rackowe presented solo shows at Lawrie Shabibi in Dubai and Jérôme Pauchant in Paris. Art fairs include solo booths at Art Basel/Miami and Art Cologne. Rackowe has also been commissioned by Calvin Klein Collection in New York and Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art in Copenhagen.
Also see Rackowe's sculpture Square Prism on the facade of The Royal British Society of Sculptors at 108 Old Brompton Road, Kensington.
Learn more about the city’s canals and their history at the London Canal Museum (last admission 4pm), before seeing the King’s Cross installations. Enjoy dinner in Granary Square, which has a host of eateries, including Antipodean-influenced Granger & Co.
