Hendry’s practice often focuses on themes of decay, the body, material use and re-use, and she has incorporated these ideas with her fascination with the imitation of life to create her first kinetic sculpture alongside other new work for this exhibition The Dump is Full of Images.

Referencing ideas relating to skin as a physical ‘container’ of the body, Hendry has produced a skin-like material inlaid with images and objects, persistently moved through a system of rollers within an 8-metre long machine. Brightly coloured images within the material include cartoon-like illustrations of what lies beneath the surface, in this case anatomy, food and detritus.
