Bio


Kristina Clackson Bonnington is a multidisciplinary artist based in the UK. Central to her practice is the examination of socio-spatial control as expressed through architectural design and the built environment. From mischievous spatial interventions to exquisite drawings, Clackson Bonnington’s work consistently repositions images and ideas to help elucidate connections and illuminate shifting social values.

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