Holly Hendry
Hendry is a British artist whose site-responsive sculptures and installations are concerned with what lives beneath the surface, from hidden underground spaces to the interior workings of the body. Her sculptures look at the back of things: cross-sections and open cracks through which you see the gooey insides. Hendry addresses ideas of permeability and morbidity through a visual language charged with cartoonish wit. Her works deal with the internal and the external in terms of the body, display, and production, revealing what would otherwise be hidden. Casting is central to Hendry's process, in which she uses an array of materials, including charcoal, foam, grit, lipstick, soap, steel, and Jesmonite (a composite material. Hendry was a fellow in contemporary art at the British School at Rome and received the inaugural Arts Foundation Award for Experimental Architecture in 2019. She lives and works in London.
