Comunicato stampa


Victoria Miro is delighted to present an exhibition in Venice by Conrad Shawcross. Coinciding with the opening of La Biennale di Venezia: The 17th International Architecture Exhibition, this presentation features a number of the artist’s celebrated Fracture sculptures and prints from a new body of work, The Patterns of Absence.



Conrad Shawcross creates sculptures and installations that, imbued with an appearance of scientific rationality, explore subjects that lie on the borders of geometry and philosophy, physics and metaphysics

He has gained a global reputation for extending the possibilities of art in the public realm, and in dialogue with architecture, with permanent commissions in the past five years including: Schism (Château La Coste), 2020, a monumental commission on permanent view in the grounds of Château La Coste, Provence; Bicameral, 2019, a major public sculpture at the Chelsea Barracks development in London; Exploded Paradigm, 2018, created for the Comcast Technology Center building, designed by Foster + Partners in Philadelphia; The Optic Cloak, 2016, a permanent commission for The Energy Centre Greenwich Peninsula, London; and Paradigm, 2016, a permanent commission for the Francis Crick Institute, London. Pioneering Places, a major public art work for Ramsgate Royal Harbour, in connection with Turner Contemporary, will be unveiled in May 2021. The artist is creating a major new public artwork, Manifold, for the Crossrail Elizabeth line at Liverpool Street, London, which will be positioned outside the Moorgate entrance of the new station when it opens in 2022.
