RA Walden is a transdisciplinary artist whose work centres a queer, disabled perspective on the fragility of the body. Their practice spans sculpture, installation, video and printed matter, all of which is undertaken with a socially engaged and research-led working methodology. Walden is interested in our ability and failure to navigate physicality, interdependency and vulnerability both communally and individually; understanding world-building not as a visionary tool for an imagined future, but as an embodied methodology for the now.
Recent work has been shown at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, UK, HAU, Berlin, The National Gallery of Australia, SOHO20, New York, and Kunstinstituut Melly, Rotterdam. Walden has been a resident of Shandaken Storm King, NYC, Wysing Arts Centre, UK, Hebbel am Ufer, Berlin and La Becque, Switzerland. Their solo exhibition access points // or // alternative states of matter(ing) opened in May 2023 at Storm King Art Center, New York.
