Lindsey Mendick

Lindsey Mendick’s practice centres on her skilled work in ceramic, which she describes being drawn to by its tactile nature and its desire to be manipulated by the maker. She also embraces banner painting, sewing, metalwork, furniture making, and sound within her work.

By playfully combining low culture iconography and high culture methods of construction, Mendick creates humorously decadent and elaborate installations that enable the viewer to explore their personal history in a cathartic fashion.

Lindsey Mendick (b. 1987, London) received her MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art in 2017, after completing a BA in Contemporary Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University. She has a solo exhibition for Invites at Zabludowicz Collection, London (April-May 2018) and has recently been awarded the 2018 Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award. Exhibitions include: If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Roaming, London (2018); You See Me Like A UFO, Marcelle Joseph Projects (2017); Herland, Bosse & Baum, London (2017); In Dark Times, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester (2017); She’s Really Nice When You Get To Know Her, Visual Arts Center, Austin Texas (2016); Anne et Lucie, Musee de Valence, France (2016); Performance: Disco 2000, Zabludowicz Collection, London (2015); and Mostyn 19, Mostyn Gallery, Wales (2015).
