Born in London in 1977, Shawcross explores subjects that lie on the borders of physics and metaphysics, geometry and philosophy. Attracted by failed quests for knowledge in the past, he often appropriates redundant theories and methodologies to create ambitious structural and mechanical works, using a wide variety of materials and media, often working on an epic scale. His work has been exhibited internationally at institutions including ArtScience Museum, Singapore; IMMA, Dublin; Auckland Art Gallery, New Zealand; MONA, Tasmania; The Hayward Gallery and Tate Britain, London.
