MIAL’S SELECTION PANEL A/W 2015 COLLECTION – NICK HORNBY
Only two days left to submit to the Made in Arts London Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection, and we are very pleased to announce our third and final member of the MiAL Selection Panel…
Submissions for Made in Arts London’s Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection are open until October 4th, and are open to all UAL students and recent graduates.
British artist Nick Hornby, born in 1980, has received degrees from the Slade School of Art at the University College London and UAL’s Chelsea College of Arts. He has exhibited in the UK, the US, Switzerland, Greece, and India, including Tate Britain, Southbank Centre, and The Fitzwilliam Museum in the UK; and Eyebeam and The Museum of Arts and Design in New York. His work has been reviewed in the New York Times, Frieze, Artforum, and featured inDazed, Wired, and Time Out, among others.
Hornby’s work emerges from the convergence of a postermodern historical perspective and cutting-edge digital technology. Using computer software, Hornby combines silhouettes sourced from art history to create three-dimensional works that, as the viewer moves around them, seem to take the shape of different well-known sculptures of the past. Hornby’s use of traditional materials like bronze and marble resin highlights the craftsmanship behind his works, which, while maintaining the look of a computer-generated model, are nevertheless hand-crafted. Mining the collective index of cultural history, Hornby uses technology not just to invoke potential new worlds but as a way of investigating alternative ways of seeing history.
