Corban Walker (b. 1967, Dublin, Ireland) gained recognition for his installations, sculptures, and drawings that relate to perceptions of scale and architectural constructs. His local, cultural, and specific philosophies of scale are fundamental to how he defines and develops his work, creating new means for viewers to interact and navigate their surroundings.
Walker graduated from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, with a degree in Fine Art Sculpture in 1992. His first solo show was held at the City Arts Centre in Dublin, Ireland in 1994. Since then, he has mounted solo exhibitions internationally and has realized eight important public commissions worldwide. Walker’s work is part of numerous public and private collections around the world, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and the Irish Museum of Art, Dublin. Since 2008, he was attended several international residency programs including Casa Wabi in Oaxaca, Mexico and Atelier Calder in Saché, France in 2015.
Walker represented Ireland at the 54th Venice International Art Biennale in 2011.
He received the Pollock Krasner Award in 2015
