Holly Hendry: Watermarks

SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, USA

Holly Hendry’s new diorama-like installations present the SCAD Museum of Art as a porous network of passages and conduits. Framed within the glass vitrines on the building’s exterior, these works encourage the viewer to reflect on the relationships between sculpture, the human body and the environment around us.

The artist focuses on the theme of flowing water, in reference to the liquid movements found across Savannah’s aquatic landscape and within human anatomy. The titles of the works reiterate this connection between the body and water. Hendry refers to lines from Ovid’s story of the water nymph Cyane, who dissolves in her own tears. This acts as a metaphor for the consequences of the global climate crisis and rising sea levels.
