For her first exhibition in Scotland, and her most ambitious project to date in the UK, artist Anne Hardy will create a major new installation in situ at The Common Guild.
Referencing the fictional worlds of authors such as JG Ballard and Haruki Murakami, along with a collection of found images and accidental sculptures, Anne Hardy creates strange environments that hover between depiction and abstraction through careful composition and precisely controlled perspectives.
Combining diverse source materials and working drawings with built structures and large-scale photographs, Hardy translates imagined space into physical form to create alternate versions of the world around us.
Highly evocative and rich in narrative potential, Hardy’s work suggests spaces that have been overlooked over time or abandoned in haste, non-places that are undefined and entirely fictional, but seem both familiar and alien in equal measure.
