Rebecca Nassauer

Rebecca Nassauer (1951-2010) was a British multimedia artist whose instinct for gathering and collecting was a necessity, not a strategy, making meaning by wrangling materials into figures that arrived, invariably, at expressions of humour and humanity. An artist and searcher since the early 1970s, Nassauer exhibited her last works at Josh Lilley, her son's gallery, as she confronted the body’s failures under illness, learning what it could still do and would always do. Josh Lilley represents the artist’s estate.
