AboutHilary Lloyd makes images using video, slides and photography. She includes the equipment used to show these images as part of the work, which therefore occupies space like sculpture. Her new work has been made for precise arrangement within the various galleries of Raven Row. Lloyd makes some of the most compelling work of her generation, but has not made a large-scale exhibition in London since 1999. She has been preparing for this show for over three years, watching Raven Row emerge from its construction site.
Lloyd's camera acts like her eye, and her gaze is exacting and intense. She allows her subjects to perform for the camera, even if they are inert, such as in the humdrum views of foreign cities, fashion magazines and road works accumulated like collages that are her subjects for this exhibition.
Lloyd was born in Halifax, UK, in 1964, and lives in London. Large exhibitions of her work have been held at Munich Kunstverein (2006), and Chisenhale Gallery, London (1999). She has also made solo presentations at Tramway, Glasgow, and Le Consortium, Dijon (both 2009), as well as at the two galleries which represent her, Galerie Neu, Berlin (2010 and 2007) and Sadie Coles HQ, London (2008). In 2011 she will make a solo exhibition for Artists Space, New York.
