Abigail Fallis MRSS

1968
- Present

Born in London in 1968, Abigail Fallis studied silversmithing and metalwork at Camberwell College of Arts, London (1996-1999). She first rose to prominence with her sardonic underwear pieces which garnered public attention when one such artwork, Cock-Eyed Jack – a pair of hand-stitched Union Jack underpants – a playful critique of the Cool Britannia trend of the 1990s, was featured in the BBC documentary, New Brit. Fallis is known for her commentary – both earnest and satirical – on the culture of consumerism and over- consumption, exemplified by sculptures such as DNA DL90 (2003), a 9 metre high double helix composed of 22 interlocking shopping trolleys, which was permanently installed in Central Square, Newcastle, in 2009. As well as metalwork, Fallis’ works in a diverse range of materials, from papier-mâché to silver, bronze, and neon. In 2008, Fallis became the first sculptor-in-residence at Pangolin London. She has exhibited widely throughout the UK and her work can be found in a number of public and private collections including Hix restaurants and Damien Hirst’s Murderme collection. In 2018, she became a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors. Fallis lives and works in Gloucestershire.
