AboutKarla Black enjoys an international reputation having
represented Scotland at the Venice Biennale in 2011.
Using materials from the domestic (often female) sphere,
including sugar paper and eye-shadow, Black's work
challenges notions of sculpture as monumental, with its
fragile impermanence. Karin Ruggaber uses the everyday
and urban architectural landscape to great formal effect,
creating wall and floor based structures and patterns that
embrace the materially poetic and subtle.
