Assembly Point is delighted to present Future Perfect, a solo project by Vanessa Billy. Post-apocalyptic in tone, this set of interconnected works further develops themes of nature and transformation, concerns at the core of Billy’s practice.


Consisting of new pieces and site specific interventions, the exhibition speculates on a future where science has radical consequences on the environment and living species within it. Vanessa Billy (b. Geneva) is based in Zurich, CH. Her work employs a wide range of substances including bronze, silicone, bio-resin, water, sump oil, metals, glass and plastics. Industrial products such as electrical cables, car engines, light bulbs get co-opted to manifest wider concerns around human consumption. Within her practice she draws parallels between physical and mental constructs and poses questions around the impact of human activity and its effects on life on earth.

Recent solo shows include ‘Dear Life’, Centre Culturel Suisse, Paris, FR (2017); ‘We dissolve’ Kunsthalle Sankt Gallen, CH; ‘all is porous’, BolteLang, Zürich, CH (2016); ‘Where is Wild ?’ c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e, Brussels, BE; ‘Stranded’, Limoncello, London, UK (2015); ‘Sustain sustain’, Collective Gallery, Edinburgh, UK (2014). Recent and forthcoming group shows include : ‘Konkrete Gegenwart’ Haus Konstructiv, Zürich ; ‘Oil. Beauty and Horror in the Petrol Age’, Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, DE and Belvedere Museum, Vienna, AT (both 2019), ‘Slow Objects’, The Common Guild, Glasgow, UK (2017) ; ‘Demain dans la bataille, pense à moi’, Institut d’Art Contemporain, Villeurbanne, FR (2016); ‘WAR II’, Mostyn, Llandudno, UK (2015)
