Details

Holly Hendry presents a new sculpture installation developed with pioneering materials, such as synthetic skins.

Through research with the University of Huddersfield – in particular Professor Parikshit Goswami of the Institute of Skin Integrity and Infection Prevention – Hendry’s new direction of work explores the creative and unique possibilities of such new media.

Hendry graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2016 and quickly established a highly productive and respected practice. She was chosen by Helen Pheby, Head of Curatorial Programme at YSP, and Selfridges, as the inaugural artist for the co-curated Art Block in Selfridges’ London flagship store. The resulting installation Phyllis, at nearly four-metres tall, featured rubble spoil from the construction of the new Duke Street Accessories Hall, referencing issues of waste and recycling. The work takes its name from one of the digging machines which had to be abandoned underground after excavating tunnels for the London Crossrail dig.
