A pioneering experimental object maker, Andrew Sabin produced his first major installation for the Chisenhale Gallery in East London in 1989. This was followed in 1990 by the Sea of Sun installation, an important element in the inaugural exhibition of European sculpture at the Henry Moore Institute which subsequently travelled to museums in Lausanne and Lisbon. In 1997 he made the final part of his trilogy of installations, The Open Sea, at the Henry Moore Sculpture Studio in Halifax.
In 1998, combining extensive experience in both object and installation making, Sabin devised the C-bin project and worked with fellow sculptor Stefan Shankland to realise it around the coastline of Europe. The success of Sabin's approach to sculpture in the public realm led to his appointment as Lead Artist in a series of large scale projects in both urban and rural contexts. Sabin was lead artist at the Horsebridge Development in Whitstable from 2001-3 and Lead Artist on the River Wandle Cycle Route from 2002-5. In 2006 he designed and built the infamous Calibrated Ramp for Bracknell Forest Council.
In 2006 he began work on The Coldstones Cut which opened in September 2010 since when it has attracted over 30,000 visitors to the Yorkshire Dales, winning a number of awards including the Marsh Award for Excellence in Public Sculpture. Recent commissions include the new public work Painting and Sculpture, created for the plinth that once supported Henry Moore's Two Piece Reclining Figure no.1,1959, on the site of the old Chelsea School of Art, London. Sabin's future commission will be an ambitious new landmark sculpture for Grizedale Forest.
