Lucy Elsie Harvey - Curiosity Cabinet
21 Jan - 17 March 2012
Lucy Elsie Harvey studied received First Class BA (HONS) in Three Dimensional Design from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2007 and MA (Distinction) in Jewellery, Silversmithing and Related Products, BIAD School of Jewellery, Birmingham in 2008.
She is a visual artist who responds to our narrative relationship with objects through craft processes and assemblage. Her small scale sculptures and jewellery re-appropriate objects and historical forms through metalwork techniques and mixed media installation. By subverting the function of the artefact she creates ambiguous forms which explore our anxieties and desires.
Her work is held in the permanent Contemporary Crafts collection at Middlesborough Institute of Modern Art (mima) and she has undertaken residencies and commissions for Aberystwyth Arts Centre, National Glass Centre, and The Art Fund. She holds an associate lecturer post at the Lincoln School of Art & Design and was shortlisted for the Jerwood Visual Arts Maker's Open in 2011.
