Lindsey Mendick has been selected through an open call for a commissioned solo exhibition that will launch SPACE’s new gallery in Ilford.

About

As part of the commission, Mendick will lead a series of ceramic workshops for Ilford’s +65s . 

Lindsey says: “I’m absolutely ecstatic to be selected for the open call artist commission at SPACE. To be able to work with members of the older community in Ilford to create the inaugural exhibition is such a privilege and exciting opportunity!” 

Lindsey Mendick (b 1987 lives and works in London) creates installations centred on her skilled work in ceramics and includes banner painting, sewing, metalwork, furniture making and sound. Her autobiographical works are often confessional, referencing the horrors and emotions of adolescence while narrating her experience as a female artist. Drawing from classical painting, mythical women and pop culture iconography, her gothic-like work tells a defiant story that is at once both vulnerable and resilient.

For her commission at SPACE, Mendick is working with a group of Ilford-based older people to explore hindsight, nostalgia and folklore through ceramics. Together they will build clay effigies in the shape of the advice they would have given their younger selves. For the exhibition – constructed as a stage for storytelling – the artist will also collaborate with her mother, a talented children’s clothes designer and seamstress, and together they will create fabric adornments for the works.

Sophie Collins has been commissioned to write an essay on the exhibition and work of Lindsey Mendick.
