Holly Hendry is Calendar's September artist of the month

Experimental architecture that redefines spaces

Alby Bailey

September’s artist of the month is British sculptor Holly Hendry, whose endlessly thought-provoking works re-define the spaces in which they sit. Hendry’s experimental, architectural sculptures look at the back of things; open cracks to reveal the gooey insides. Often subtly anatomical, her works address both biology and buildings with a unique sense of perspective. Activities or situations usually left hidden are brought into view through specific objects, textures or forms. Pairing figurative shapes with traditionally architectural spaces and materials, Hendry addresses morbidity through a visual language that speaks of comic insignificance.⁠⁠
