Details

The Tetley warmly invites you to the exhibition launch of Nika Neelova: EVER and Holly Hendry: Cenotaph

Join us for a night of speeches, complimentary drinks and the first official viewing of the exhibitions. 6–8pm, FREE, all welcome!

Nika Neelova
_EVER_ is Nika Neelova's first solo exhibition in a public gallery in the UK, presenting new and existing work by the Russian-born artist. This ambitious sculptural exhibition responds to, and is in dialogue with, the building's unique art deco architecture.

Often utilising reclaimed architectural materials, Neelova is interested in the way materials and architecture influence our sense of time and place. Her sculptures are created by employing tactics of 'reverse archaeology' - considering an alternative reading of human history by examining found objects and architectural debris, and transforming them beyond functionality. In these works the human body and touch remains as a vestigial memory. Find out more here [https://www.thetetley.org/whats-on/nika-neelova].

Holly Hendry
As part of the Liverpool Biennial touring programme, Holly Hendry's large-scale public artwork Cenotaph, inspired by the artist's interest in the underground architecture of cities, will find a new home outside The Tetley. Hendry's sculptures look at the back of things, as she says "open cracks where you see the gooey insides". Find out more here [https://www.thetetley.org/whats-on/holly-hendry].
