Hannah Perry & Simeon Barclay | It´s not there till it´s there: curated by Robert Sheffield

12 September - 10 November 2018

Opening: Tuesday, 11th of September | 7pm

 

Hannah Perry (*1984) is a British artist working mainly in installation, sculpture print and video. A graduate of the Royal Academy of Arts, Perry uses a network of personal references to continuously generate and manipulate videos, sounds, images and objects, exploring intimate memory in a hyper-technological society. Guided by music, repetition and deceleration, Perry reveals youth and femininity as defined through images as well as beholder of desires.

Simeon Barclay (*1975) is an artist living and working in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. He recieved his MFA from Goldsmiths College, London, a PG Dip at Chelsea College of Art & Design, London and a BA from Leeds Metropolitan University, Leeds.
Barclay is invested in the dynamic nature of language, the mediated image and objects to both seduce and provoke. These impulses are understood in relation to the human condition, an existence Barclay perceives as being caught up in the tumultuous, unfixed process of situating and defining ourselves within culture and tradition.
