Corban Walker

An exhibition of new work by Corban Walker will take place at Solomon from 28 September - 21 October 2013

Corban Walker was born in Dublin, 1967. Educated by the Jesuits at Gonzaga College, Walker studied for a degree in sculpture at NCAD, 1987–92. Since then, he has mounted several solo exhibitions internationally and has realized important public art commissions worldwide. Walker’s work is part of numerous public and private collections including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. Walker represented Ireland at the 54th Venice International Art Biennale in 2011 and received the prestigious Pollock Krasner Award in 2015. Walker was also elected to Aosdána in 2011. 


Walker is widely recognised 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’s latest public sculpture, Bushy, was unveiled this year in Dublin’s Bushy Park as part of the Sculpture Dublin initiative. His forthcoming institutional solo exhibition, As Far As I Can See takes place at the Crawford Gallery, Cork from October 2022 - January 2023.
