Corban Walker was born in Dublin in 1967. He has gained recognition for his installations, sculptures, and drawings that relate to perceptions of scale and architectural constructs. His local, cultural, and specific philosophies of scale are fundamental to how he defines and develops his work, creating new means for viewers to interact and navigate their surroundings.
Walker graduated with a degree in Fine Art Sculpture in 1992 from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. His first solo show was held at the City Arts Centre in Dublin in 1994. Since then, he has mounted solo exhibitions internationally and has realised eight important public commissions. Walker's work is part of numerous public and private collections around the world, including the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin.
Walker first exhibited with Pace Wildenstein in the fall of 2000 and held subsequent exhibitions at the gallery in 2007 and 2009. In 2008, he was a visiting artist at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington. In July 2010, Corban Walker was chosen to represent Ireland at the 54th Venice International Art Biennale 2011.
Corban Walker has lived and worked in New York since 2004.
