Lindsey Mendick (b. 1987, London, UK) is a London-based artist who received an MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in London in 2017. Mendick’s practice is hinged to her skilled work in ceramics, which she describes being drawn to for its tactile nature and its desire to be manipulated by the maker. She also embraces banner painting, sewing, metalwork, furniture making and sound within her autobiographical practice. By playfully combining low culture iconography and high culture methods of construction, Mendick creates humorously decadent and elaborate installations that enable the viewer to explore their personal history in a cathartic fashion. As well as her solo sculptural practice, Mendick is a co-founder of the Proudick platform, which is at once an artists’ collective, a project space and a place for exchanging ideas and learning about ceramics. Recent solo and two-person exhibitions include: ‘Regrets, I’ve Had a Few’, SPACE, Ilford, UK (2019-2020); ‘Of all the things I’ve lost’ (with Paloma Proudfoot), Ballon Rouge Club, Brussels (2019); ‘The Ex Files’, Castor Projects, London (2019); ‘The Turnpike Pottery’, The Turnpike, Leigh (2018); ‘Perfectly Ripe’, Zabludowicz Collection, London (2018); ‘PROUDICK’ (with Paloma Proudfoot), Hannah Barry Gallery, London (2018); ‘Jamie Fitzpatrick and Lindsey Mendick’, Vitrine, Basel (2018); and ‘She’s Really Nice When You Get To Know Her’, Visual Arts Center, Austin, Texas (2016).Selected group exhibitions include: ‘Survey’, Jerwood Space, London (2018); ‘Something Else’, Triumph Gallery, Moscow (2018); ‘Rhapsodies’, Ping Pong, Brussels (2018); ‘If You Can’t Stand the Heat’, Roaming Projects, London (2018); ‘Flipside’, Fold Gallery, London (2018); ‘You See Me Like a UFO’, Marcelle Joseph Projects, Ascot (2017); ‘Herland’, Bosse & Baum, London (2017); ‘In Dark Times’, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester (2017); ‘You Were High When I Was Doomed’, IMT Gallery, London (2017); and ‘Sell Yourself’, Patrick Studios, Leeds (2017).
