Holly Hendry: The Dump is Full of Images
September 21, 2019 - April 19, 2020
The Weston Gallery at Yorkshire Sculpture Park:
West Bretton, Wakefield WF4 4LG UK


Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2016, London-based artist Holly Hendry has made a name for herself with her distinctive interpretation of human anatomy. Her sculptures mix blobby pieces of plaster and marble with unconventional materials — lipstick, soap, eyeshadow, ash, and turmeric among them — to create objects that evoke a slice of someone’s insides, super-sized and rendered in pastel. Her first kinetic sculpture, on view here, continuously feeds a conveyor belt of silicone “skin,” printed with internal organs, food, and detritus, through steel rollers. Let the state of your digestion determine the machine’s message.
