About the work
All my work is an assemblage of parts. In my studio and in my mind, ‘wholes’ are constructed from ‘parts’. These can be disassembled and made to stand alone.
About the artist:
Born 1962 Manchester, Cathie Pilkington lives and works in London. Graduated from Edinburgh College of Art (1991), and The Royal College of Art (1997).
Pilkington is an artist whose work engages passionately and critically with the canonical history of figurative sculpture. Crossing the borders of traditional, modern and contemporary idioms, her work combines intensively modelled and painted sculptures within immersive installations comprising a diverse array of props, materials and studio furniture. Her site-responsive installations are balanced ambivalently between chaos and precision and have been described as a kind of art historical fly-tipping.
Selected exhibitions include The Covering, Karsten Schubert, London (2020); Working from Home, Pallant House Gallery, Chichester (2019); Working from Home, Dorich House Museum, London (2018); Doll for Petra, Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft (2017); Life Room: Anatomy of a Doll, Royal Academy Schools Life Room, London (2017); and The Value of the Paw, V&A Museum of Childhood, Bethnal Green (2012).
Awards include being elected as a Royal Academician (2014); and becoming professor of Sculpture at the Royal Academy Schools (2016).
