An exhibit of large format photography from Anne Hardy is on view at Maureen Paley in London. This marks the artist’s second solo show at the gallery.

Hardy creates these installations in her studio with the intention of photographing the finished piece. Found objects clutter the spaces with a haphazard brilliance that vacillates between genius and madness.

These aberrate territories frolic in their own logic. The artist commingles with objects and space to form the other. It is this character, never seen but borne from the creative process that encourages the viewer to speculate about this fictional persona and the goals they pursue.
