Mike Nelson

Structural artist

Mike Nelson was born in Loughborough, UK in 1967 but he currently lives and works in London. Mike Nelson came to prominence in the late 1990s, creating psychological environments by sifting through the debris of modern life. Working with figures and materials on the fringes of society, Nelson asks his viewers to spend time inhabiting worlds that, while foreign on the surface, reveal intrinsic truths and modes of thought that affect even the most basic cultural activities.
