Certificate of Authenticity

  • Artist Statement

    Victoria Rance creates artworks the viewer can interact with, either physically or in the imagination. She records interactions with her sculptures using photography, film and animation, creating characters or alter egos such as Fisherdottir, a shape shifting wanderer, Thorness, a protector of nature, and Firebird who raises the alarm on global warming. These appear in her images, performances, films and animations, and she often works collaboratively with other artists and musicians. 

    Series of works include:

    'Sculpture to wear' is a series creating a sheltering skin that protects or alters the sense of self, provoking ambivalent responses in the wearer and viewer; their forms suggest a usefulness or functionality. 

    'Otherworld' is a series of small pewter sculptures about the magical, mythological relationships between humans, animals and nature. 

    'I Wish' is an ongoing project in which she makes a talismanic object in response to a one to one conversation about a wish.
