Ruggaber, Karin (2011) Psychedelica: constellation lamp. [Show/Exhibition]
|Type of Research:||Show/Exhibition|
A unique work created for Psychedelica generously donated by the artist Karin Ruggaber.
“Constellation lamp presents a customised arche lamp with 7 floor-based relief pieces arranged in a precise yet open configuration around the pivot of lamp’s radius. The piece is touching on the symbolism and circularity of zodiac constellations as a means to map and locate.”
Karin Ruggaber makes sculpture as well as producing artist’s books. She works with a range of materials and media, considering materials in relation to their dynamic and association with particular activities, or representational function.

The ICA hosted its fundraising party Psychedelica on the evening of 29 March 2011. As part of the celebrations they auctioned 30 original works created by established and emerging artists including Damien Hirst, Ai Weiwei, Jake and Dinos Chapman and many more. The auction lots were available for preview from 23-27 March in the Upper Galleries and visitors were able to place absentee bids with a member of staff.
The ICA would like to thank all of the artists and galleries who have supported our auction and our special thanks go to made.com and Velorution for donating special items for the contemporary artists who customised each piece to produce a unique work for our psychedelic theme.
