CCA Introducing: Harry Grundy
On Wednesday 14 July 2021 from 10am, follow artist Harry Grundy as he takes over our Instagram and Twitter pages to share his work and research for CCA Introducing 2021. CCA Introducing is a series of 24 hour social media takeovers by emerging artists. Each artist has been nominated by an artist or curator connected to CCA. The recommendation to invite Harry to participate in CCA Introducing came from artist Ryan Gander, who was part of CCA Derry~Londonderry's Make every show like it’s your last 2014 solo exhibition.
Harry Grundy (b.1993) is a West Yorkshire based artist making art for the Anthropocene epoch. Conceptual, performative and multidisciplinary, Harry is working in the natural world in an unnatural time. With a background in design, ideas are treated with a rigorous honesty and crafted with a graphic eye. Learnings from the Land Art movement are tested against post-internet conditions encouraging a tension that reflects the way our species have brutalised Earth to meet an industrialized ideal. Through layering paradox, Harry asks the viewer to look closely and critically at our relationship with this phenomenal world.
Harry has completed a residency at Fabrica Research Centre in Treviso, Italy (2019—2020) and the Emerging Creatives Residency at the H Club in London (2019). He has shown work in Beijing, London, Venice and Winchester and has guest tutored at Kingston University and London College of Communication. Harry has written for Elephant Magazine, AIGA, Lecture in Progress and BFR Mag. He graduated from Kingston University in 2016 with first class honours in graphic design and studied clowning at Albert and Friends Circus School in 2007.
