Join us for the launch of Holly Hendry's large-scale outdoor artwork Cenotaph outside The Tetley gallery and former brewery site in Leeds. 

Originally commissioned for Liverpool Biennial 2018, the sculpture is inspired by the underground architecture of cities. Holly Hendry is interested in the anatomy of our surroundings and the innards and plumbing of the city itself. Drawn to methods and materials that relate to past and future circulatory systems, Hendry describes her sculptures as "open cracks where you see the gooey insides". 

Cenotaph will be on view outside The Tetley from 21 June – 13 October 2019, coinciding with the inaugural Yorkshire Sculpture International. The exhibition is part of the Liverpool Biennial touring programme, which brings works by international artists presented at the 2018 festival of contemporary art to spaces across the North of England.

Cenotaph (2018) was commissioned by Liverpool Biennial and Liverpool BID Company.
