BALTIC Bites: Holly Hendry

Publication Date 25 Jul 2017

Holly Hendry (b. London, 1990) presents an entirely new body of work for her first solo exhibition in a UK arts institution. Using a variety of materials, from Jesmonite and plaster to foam, wood, steel and water-jet cut marble, she creates a geology of oozy forms peppered with comic elements, such as dog chew bones and spinning plaster teeth.

She investigates the underneath and backsides of things, using cross-sectional cuts that make insides become edges, revealing their dirty innards. Her sugary colours and cartoon content examine the very human aspects of laughter and death.
