Bio


Kristina Clackson Bonnington is a multidisciplinary artist based in London. Central to her practice is the examination of socio-spatial control as expressed through architectural design and the built environment.

Recent works look deeper into historical collections, exploring hierarchies of power and anthropocentricity in the presentation of material presented for public consumption. Kristina questions: whose knowledge for whom, in whose interests and to whose exclusion?

"From large-scale spatial interventions to lab-based works, Kristina consistently repositions visual material to illuminate shifting social values." Art Licks
