EMMANUELE PANZARINI

ROSIE LEVENTON

ROSIE LEVENTON

Rosie Leventon makes sculptural installations, for indoors and environmental art in the landscape. She is always experimenting with new materials and using them in innovative ways, such as Celotex Insulation, central heating pipes, recycled mobile phones and paperbacks, as well as more durable stone, water and earth. Some of Leventon's installations comprise radical interventions into the interior architecture of a building. She has constructed false floors that float on water and which shift under foot.
