Tamsin Snow

Tamsin Snow lives and works in Dublin and London. She received her BA in Fine Art and Contemporary Critical Studies from Goldsmiths University, London [2008] and her MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art, London [2012]. Recent exhibitions include Dead Rubber, UEL Project space, London; Dazed X Confused Emerging Artist Award, Royal Academy, London [2015], Lobby Part I & II, Oonagh Young Gallery, Dublin [2015] and Pavilion, Store, London [2014]. She was the recipient of the Royal Hibernian Academy Artists Studio Award [2012/13], Visual Arts Bursary Award [2015/16] and Wicklow Arts Council Artist Award [2016].

Tamsin Snow’s residency is realised in collaboration with Temple Bar Gallery + Studios in the framework of Helsinki-Dublin Residency Exchange Programme.

Snow’s proposal for HIAP will enable research into particular buildings in Helsinki and across Finland: the Kamppi Chapel; the Lakeuden Risti Church; and the Paimio Sanatorium. She is interested in the discourse around contemporary sacred architecture, and the legacies of the works of Alvar Aalto and Eliel Saarinen.
