8th February – 23rd March 2013 A Brooks Art 194-196 Hoxton Street London N1 5LH

A Brooks Art have teamed up with WW Gallery to present More Strange Hungers a solo show of recent and new works by Sadie Hennessy.

In More Strange Hungers, Hennessy continues to deliver her humorous, wry, feminist manifesto and a celebration of female empowerment and sexuality. Her hybrid collages and assemblages create unsettlingly surreal combinations and are delivered with a wicked sense of humour.

About The Artist
Sadie Hennessy creates hybrid objects & images which are both comfortably familiar and deeply unsettling. She operates within a cultural framework of ‘Englishness’ and explores the idea of nostalgia, and more pertinently, the construct of ‘faux nostalgia’ i.e. the yearning for a time that never actually existed.

In August 2010 Hennessy won the Jealous Graduate Art Prize for her final MA show (‘Accident & Emergency’) at Central St. Martins. In 2011 she was artist-in-residence in the printmaking department at Croydon College of Art, culminating in a solo show in the Parfitt Gallery in January 2012 Freud in Dreamland. She is represented by WW Gallery, London and has exhibited with them at the 54th Venice Biennale (June 2011), Crunch Art Festival (November 2011), London Art Fair (January 2011) and Strange Hungers WW Gallery, EC1 (2012).

“More Strange Hungers is Sensational Super Charged and Salacious!”

Artist Talk with Sadie Hennessy in conversation with Beverly Knowles
to coincide with More Strange Hungers at A Brooks Art on 7th March 2013 6.30- 7.30

In More Strange Hungers at A Brooks Art, Hennessy salutes female empowerment and the expression of female lust and desire. ‘My work intends to unsettle its audience and to elicit a jolt of recognition in them…I am not afraid of using humour to create a reaction but it definitely comes from the darkest end of the comic spectrum’. Sadie Hennessy

Her current work, practice and unique perspective will be explored in conversation with Beverly Knowles

    Just a bunch of one liner tacky jokes, damn its not 1992 anymore. High heel shoes on a zimmer frame who gives shit. I’m all for conceptual art and feminist manifestos but this has no imagination and nothing interesting to say.
