Born in 1966, Tania Kovats is an artist concerned with the experience and understanding of landscape. After completing an MA at the Royal College of Art in 1990, she has exhibited her work internationally and in the UK. Her work is present in many major collections as well existing as significant permanent public commissions. Primarily a sculptor, in recent years Kovats’ work has responded to what she describes as ‘geologically explicit landscapes’ where the process of gradual transformations like erosion, compression and subsistence are evident. Travel is often central to her work, from Meadow (2007) - the transportation of a complete wildflower meadow by canal boat from Bath to London - to her 2008 journey around South America, exploring the landscape where Darwin first began to develop his evolutionary ideas. She lives and works in London.
