Ron Haselden/ ARTISTS 1900-the present day/ ART MAIN

Ron Haselden was awarded an Andrew Grant scholarship to study sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art (1961-66). He taught sculpture in the Department of Fine Art, Reading University and founded the mixed media area in the early seventies. He lives and works in London and in Plouër-sur-Rance, France.

Haselden was awarded the Sargant Fellowship at the British School at Rome, Italy and during the course of his productions he has received awards and grants from numerous funding bodies which include The Arts Council of Great Britain, The Lorne Award, The Hamlyn Foundation, The Elephant Trust, The Esmée Fairbaim Foundation, The London Arts Board, The Henry Moore Foundation, The British Council, The RSA Art for Architecture Award Scheme, Alliance Française, Conseil Général Côtes d’Armor and le Fonds Régional d’Arts Contemporain (FRAC) de Brétagne. Currently joint curator for Aller À Quessant. A video biennial on the Isle of Ouessant, France

Much of the sculpture is concerned with light as constructions, photographic works and video. The three-dimensional work ranges from a minute scale to large performance productions involving up to 400 participants which take place in major cities in Europe. Some sculpture is permanently installed in public spaces throughout the UK , whilst other work is conceived and installed in galleries or for limited periods of time in rural landscape locations.
