  • About the artist
    Born in Brighton, Tania Kovats lives and works in Devon. She studied at Newcastle Polytechnic (1985–88) and at the Royal College of Art (1988–90). Her research-led practice is an exploration of our experience of landscape, increasingly with an environmental focus. Her work includes temporary and permanent sculptural works often in the public realm, drawing, and writing, that consider her preoccupation with water, rivers, seas and oceans. Kovats has received a number of awards, including a Civic Trust Award for outstanding contribution to the quality and appearance of the environment in 2000.
