HEDWIG HOUBEN AT SPIKE ISLAND
Outset to announce its support of artist Hedwig Houben's first UK solo exhibition at Spike Island, Bristol.
Dutch artist Hedwig Houben b. Boxtel, The Netherlands, 1983) makes sculptural works that are mediated by film, performance and language. She foregrounds the acts of making and talking about art in awkward performances that reveal to the viewer the questions she asks of her own activity and process. Houben has described her work as attempting to understand how the process of making works "relates to the structures that we create together within society – rules, assumptions, expectations."
The show at Spike Island will include a number of key works made over the last five years, encompassing film, performance, sculpture and text.
