Holly Hendry

Born 1990 in London (United Kingdom),
lives and works in London (United Kingdom)

Holly Hendry’s sculptures stretch the interior/exterior boundary, dissecting spaces and surfaces. Her shapes flow from a mingling of techniques and imaginary scientific realms – somewhere between medical dissections and archaeological digs of our local areas. Made with the tools and aesthetics of architecture and the industrial world, her pieces sometimes look like chewing-gum stuck secretively in cracks in the tarmac. For the Biennale, the artist sculpts a vast economic and mechanical landscape that draws on the amusing craziness of industrial machines going haywire and the fragility of the body.
