Holly Hendry: Wrot: Exhibition Walkthrough

Data Disk Shelf Location BALTIC 2017M
Publication Date 20 Apr 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.

In this exhibition walkthrough Holly offers an insight into her working process and the challenges of making of her first exhibition of this scale and ambition.
