Angela Bulloch was born 1966 in Rainy River, Ontario, in Canada. She studied at Goldsmiths College, University of London. The artist lives and works in Berlin.
In 1997, Bulloch was nominated for the Turner Prize and in 2005, for the Berlin-based Preis der Nationalgalerie für junge Kunst. In 2011, she received the Vattenfall Contemporary Art Prize, Berlin, as well as the Art Prize of the city of Wolfsburg.
Angela Bulloch's work spans many media, manifesting her interest in systems, patterns and rules, as well as her preoccupation with the history of shapes and human interaction. Her recent series of sculptures combines her interest in the logic of geometry and seriality with a graphic quality. The appearance of the sculpture shifts according to one's point of view: from one side the irregular aspect dominates, while from another, the impression of a certain totemic regularity prevails.
Bulloch's recent solo exhibitions include: Anima Vectorias, MAAT, Lisbon (2019); Angela Bulloch, Omi International arts Center, The Fields Sculpture Park, Ghent, NY (2017); Considering Dynamics & The Forms of Chaos, Sharjah Art Museum, Sharjah (2016); Short Big Drama, Witte de With, Rotterdam (2012); Time & Line, Städtische Galerie, Wolfsburg (2011), and Information, Manifesto, Rules And Other Leaks…, Vattenfall Contemporary Art Prize, Berlinische Galerie, Berlin (2011).
