Armstrong, Harris and Harrison examine the contradictions of ‘love and rage’. Each of their practices is socially and politically driven examining humanity’s past cultures and dominances, to reimagine the future.

Henrietta Armstrong is a multimedia artist influenced by archaeology and anthropology. Whilst fabricating archaeological artefacts and relics, she looks at the ceremonial practices that could be applied to them, considering rituals from the past and future. Looking at defunct technologies and structures she digitally alters their forms to create futuristic totems. She most recently completed the Pendle Hill Summit Stones, a permanent public sculpture commission, creating a series of 12 sculptures that are sited around the Trig Point of Pendle Hill in Lancashire – Commissioned by Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership & In-Situ. / @henri_armstrong

Kirsty Harris’s solo exhibition A Foul and Awesome Display is showing at Vane Gallery, Newcastle Upon Tyne until 28th September 2019. She has shown work extensively in group exhibitions – most recently, Field Study: The Auxiliary Warehouse, Middlesbrough (2019). Her work is held in private and public collections internationally including The National Atomic Testing Museum, Nevada, USA. / @kirsty_harris_art

Hayley Harrison’s work examines our disconnection with ‘nature’ and each other – via discarded materials, text, performance, and video. Her work has been selected for the Creekside Open 2019, and in 2018 her work was selected by the White Pube for the ‘OUTPOST Members Show’ (Norwich) and by Tessa Garland and Sophie Hill for ‘Visions in the Nunnery’ at Nunnery Gallery (London). Harrison lives and works in London, and delivers socially engaged projects informed by themes within her practice. / @hayley_harrison_
