Rachel Fallon is based in Wicklow, Ireland. Her background in film and cirque nouveau has informed her sculptural and performance installations and her interest in the dynamics of shared creation. In 2011 she was selected for an Artist Practice mentorship programme which led to the formation of the The Tellurometer Project, an artist led group that investigates modes of communication and dialogue as a means of initiating creative work. Fallon has been the recipient of numerous awards for her individual practice including Iron-R2(2014) & Iron-R(2012) National Sculpture Factory (CIT Research Fund), Artlinks Emerging Artists’ Bursary(2012) and the Artist Research Group funded by Wicklow County Council and the Arts Council(2012) as well as residencies and project research grants for her collaborative practices.
She is also member of RAFT, a collective involved in socially engaged practice, collaborative and gallery works in a range of methodologies. Her individual practice, with its’ domestic and maternal thematic, has led to projects with U.K. groups Desperate Artwives and MeWe.
