Isobel Atacus is a visual artist working with sculpture, installation and text. The work considers the relation between language and material. More specifically, interrogating how flows of material (to include that of text) might be mediated, redirected or altered in some way, to affect the processes of reading and sensory engagement. This frequently emerges as more performative practice. To find meeting points between materials, and explore ways to push or extend them, becomes a preoccupation in a lot of the work. Atacus directs a curatorial project, the icing room, an artist-run space founded in 2015.
