Maureen Paley, London is pleased to announce a presentation of new work by Anne Hardy. This will be her third exhibition at the gallery. Following on from her recent solo show at the Secession in Vienna, Anne Hardy will present three photographs, Notations, Script and Shelf and two new sculptural installation works, Two Joined Fields – Field (/\) and Field (decagon) and Fieldwork (materials).
This sculptural continuation has grown out of her recent residency at the Camden Arts Centre. It is the first time she allows the viewer to enter an actual space of her making. In the past these were created solely to be photographed and were always destroyed afterwards. Breaking away from this former process allows her to expand her working methods and has given her a new dimension to explore within this exhibition. The structure was created in the space one month prior to the show opening and has slowly taken shape during that time period.
Anne Hardy received an MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art, London in 2000.
