Annie Cattrell

Scottish artist Annie Cattrell's cross-disciplinary practice is rooted in collaboration with experts in fields such as neuroscience, meteorology, engineering, psychiatry, and geology. In Field Notes, Cattrell responds to the poetic nature of the building, its history, and its connection to the landscape, in a series of sculptures that seek to understand unquantifiable aspects that are felt rather than seen; the undercurrent of the space.

Annie Cattrell studied fine art at Glasgow School of Art, University of Ulster, and the Royal College of Art.  Her work has been exhibited at venues including Mori Art Museum, Japan; Victoria and Albert Museum, UK; Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, Scotland; Kunstverein Freiburg, Germany; Nationalmuseum, Sweden; Museum für Gestaltung Zurich, Switzerland; and Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany.  Cattrell has undertaken many large-scale commissions and her work can be found in both private and public collections including MacManus Art Gallery and Museum, Dundee; Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museums; Edinburgh City Art Centre, and the Scottish Arts Council.  Cattrell was joint winner of the Bombay Sapphire Prize in 2008.  She has been a tutor at the Royal College of Art since 2000.
