Rebecca Griffiths

biography

Rebecca Griffiths was born in Surrey in 1984. She gained a First Class BA in Fine Art from University College Falmouth and an MA in Sculpture from The Royal College of Art in 2011. She lives and works in London. Interested in the objects of mass-production and their associated materiality, Rebecca’s sculptural work explores the residue of lived experience. Frequently inventing processes that simultaneously de-stabilise and monumentalise the object, she questions what it means to reside in a world ‘designed to fit’.
