Crowe and Rawlinson

Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson are based in Berlin and Manchester and have worked collaboratively since 1994.  Their work is primarily concerned with the languages of power, with its grammar and with its rhetoric. Their projects address questions around faith, politics, national identity and the environment and their video and sculptural works create an encounter with the viewer that focuses on the complexity of objects and actions in relation to their social contexts. Solo exhibitons include 'Stolen Artifact', Kotti-Shop, Berlin, 2011;  'The Fireworks', Isolation Room, St Louis, 2011; 'No Sign of Helicopters', Ceri Hand Gallery, Liverpool, 2010, 'The Carriers Prayer' Newlyn Art Gallery, 2009 and 'At 25 Metres', FACT, Liverpool, 2008. Group exhibitions include ‘Kritishe Masse, HfbK, Dresden, 2011; 'Dimensions in Contemporary British Art', British Council, Dehli, 2010; The Way We Do Art Now' Tanya Leighton Gallery, Berlin, 2010  and 'Re-make/Re-model' National Glass Centre, Sunderland, 2010/11.
