Catriona Robertson (b.1987, UK) is a sculptor based in London. She holds a BAFA from Central Saint Martins, London (2010) and forthcoming MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London (2019). Catriona also works as a Technician in 3D fabrication at Central Saint Martins, London, teaching students at Foundation BA and MA level.
The making and un-making process is an integral part of her sculpture, working with constructive materials and some found objects to create sculptural assemblages that have an architectural resemblance with a raw sense of formation. Drawing from the in-between moment that may be overlooked at first glance, her work evokes performativity in a solid form; the potential state in which there is an element of chance or possible destruction. Her sculptures create an opposition of material and surface – forming tension and fragility, whilst questioning the permanence of the material and traditional sculptural practices.
Catriona was recently artist-in-residence at the Merz Barn, Elterwater, UK and co-ordinated a summer residency programme for Royal College of Art Students in July 2018. In 2015 she was awarded the REFRESH grant by Central Saint Martins for an artist residency in Onishi, Japan at Shiro Oni Studio, as well as artist-in-residence at Liebig 12, Berlin from December 2011-February 2012.
