Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art is delighted to present Sign 2, 2017, an extraordinary limited edition sculpture combining structure and light by London-based artist Nathaniel Rackowe. This edition was made for the 2016 addition to the Parasolstice – Winter Light series, for which Parasol unit invites a contemporary artist to exhibit a work that addresses the phenomenon of light.

Inspired by the urban environment, Rackowe often combines recognisable elements of light, urban infrastructure and industrial products, such as scaffolding poles or breeze blocks. Rackowe's works pay particular homage to the artists Donald Judd and Dan Flavin . Similarly, Rackowe uses mass-produced industrial materials together with the element of light to create contemporary monuments.

Nathaniel Rackowe, born 1975 in Cambridge, currently lives and works in London. He studied at Sheffield Hallam University, achieving a BA Hons Fine Art (Sculpture) in 1998. In 2001, he earned an MFA Sculpture from The Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, having gained an Arts and Humanities Research Board Award for postgraduate study. Since then he has participated widely in group and solo exhibitions around the world, including in Bangkok, China, Colombia, Europe, Korea, Thailand, the USA, and most recently in Dubai, where his solo exhibition Radiant Trajectory was shown at Lawrie Shabibi in 2015.
