Andrew Ranville

Andrew Ranville United States/United Kingdom
Andrew Ranville was born in 1981 in Michigan. He lived and worked in London from 2006 to 2016, receiving his MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art. Andrew’s installations, sculptures, architectural interventions, photographs and films underline research that includes environment, community and fieldwork as a medium. The balance between the formal and functional aspects of the work often elicits viewer interactions, and are realized using ecologically sensitive methods which emphasize revitalization and resilience. He has been living and working nomadically since 2016.

Sauna Island
Sauna Island is a social sculpture. It is a functioning sauna made from salvaged wood and other materials, the majority of which were found on-site. Each piece inevitably imbues the final structure with history, character, and an ethos in line with my practice, which is focused on community and resiliency. As sculpture and architecture, the work is completed through visitation and activation by visitors and I-Park residents.
