Anne Deeming: i didn't see you there

Anne Deeming
i didn't see you there
22 June – 14 July 2013

Hand in Glove are delighted to announce the launch of their Public Realm Commission project i didn’t see you there by Bristol-based artist Anne Deeming.

Anne Deeming makes sculptural objects that look useable and recognisable in some way – and yet are not. As amalgamations of commercially produced commodities, her works examine the role that expectation and memory plays in our reading and understanding of the everyday objects that we encounter and surround ourselves with. Deeming’s unique objects are predominately human in scale, conjuring multiple associations with things domestic, industrial, playful, useful, useless, familiar and foreign.

For i didn’t see you there, Deeming will site 12 new sculptures on street furniture around the Redcliffe area of central Bristol. A map of the sites will be available to download from the Hand in Glove website after the launch.
