You Cant Outrun This (2017)
Henry Hussey is a British artist born in London in 1990 where he still resides.
His artworks are emotionally raw, created mainly through the paradoxically laboured and intricate medium of textiles. Whether through an expanding vocabulary of quasi-mythological symbols, or in embroidered lines of text extracted from performative situations, he explores personal and national identity in response to aggravating relationships and events. Recent experimentations with other materials including glass and bronze reveal a deeper concern with control and chaos and the sweet spot in between these two distinctive states.
Hussey studied Textiles at Chelsea College of Art before completing an MA in Textiles at the Royal Academy. His work is widely respected and has been exhibited in notable exhibitions and collections including Textiel Biennale 2017 at Museum Rijswijk in the Hague, a Solo presentation at Art Central in Hong Kong, the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2014, the Institute of Contemporary Art in London and Volta NY, New York. His inaugural solo exhibition at Anima-Mundi was held in 2017. His work is already held in collections worldwide. Henry Hussey is represented by Anima-Mundi.
