Spike Island is pleased to announce Rachal Bradley as the recipient of Spike Island and Creative Youth Network Engagement Fellowship for Artists. Bradley will work with Creative Futures alumni to create a new commission that will be presented at Spike Island in autumn 2022.
Rachal Bradley is an artist and writer currently based in London. In her work, Bradley aims to understand the formative and formal relationships between the body and systemic structures within society. By way of industrial appropriation, poetic hacking, reconfiguration, recalibration and the readymade, her sculptural practice attempts to create the conditions for an erotic encounter with infrastructure. Bradley has exhibited across Europe and the UK, and she contributes to the journal Texte Zur Kunst from time to time. She is currently co-authoring the book Indebted Vision with artist Inka Meißner and working in her studio in South East London whilst teaching at London Metropolitan University, London.
