John Rainey

John Rainey is interested in how the prevalence of the virtual and the simulated in our daily lives can cause our experiences of ‘reality’ and systems of living to become increasingly hyperreal. His uncanny sculptures reflect on existential questions, in particular those posed in a society where individuals have become increasingly familiar with a mutable notion of identity. His 2013 solo exhibition in the Marsden Woo Project Space, ‘Hyper Activity: Scenes From An Other Reality’, featured a major series of new works that carry ideas of multiplicity, observation and self-editing, all familiar from our engagement with virtual worlds. Arrested from another social space, his extraordinary sculptures exist as snapshots of our activities and practices within the virtual realm and speak of an altered form of human consciousness.

Rainey studied at Manchester Metropolitan University (2006-2009) and at the Royal College of Art (2010-2012). His work has been exhibited in the 2009 British Ceramics Biennial, Stoke-on-Trent; Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Milan, 2012; Santorini Biennale of Arts 2012, COLLECT Project Space 2012 and the 2013 Derry-Londonderry UK City of Culture programme, funded by The Culture Company 2013.
