Conrad Shawcross

Conrad Shawcross (b. 1977) explores subjects that lie on the borders of geometry and philosophy, physics and metaphysics. In April 2016, Shawcross created Paradigm, a 14m high permanent work for the Francis Crick Institute in the heart of King’s Cross, London, and during the summer, The Optic Cloak, a major architectural intervention for the Greenwich Peninsula, was unveiled. In 2015 the artist completed major, site-specific works for Dulwich Park (Three Perpetual Chords), the Royal Academy of Arts courtyard (The Dappled Light of the Sun), and Chatsworth House (Beyond Limits). Shawcross has had solo presentations at institutions including New Art Centre, UK (2015); Dulwich Picture Gallery, London (2015); Careyes Foundation, Mexico (2014); The Vinyl Factory, London (2014); ARTMIA Foundation, Beijing (2014); Roundhouse, London (2013); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013); MUDAM, Luxembourg (2012); Science Museum, London (2011 - 2012); and Turner Contemporary, Margate (2011). His work has been exhibited at galleries including the Royal Academy of Arts, London (2014 and 2015); MONA, Tasmania (2014 and 2011); Grand Palais, Paris (2013); and Hayward Gallery, London (2013).
