  • Lindsey Mendick’s work often draws on the autobiographical, transforming personal stories into immersive environments made from ceramics, painting, metal work, sound and film. Her works often combine narrative humour with grotesque imagery, playing at the boundaries between seduction, delight and humour. 

    Every part of me is characteristic of Mendick’s ceramic work, which was heralded by Ben Luke in The Evening Standard as ‘one of the six things you can’t miss’ at Frieze in 2021. This vase is brilliantly inventive, combining flowers and slugs that suggest the beauty of the natural world, as well as male and female sexual organs. As with much of Mendick’s work, it teeters at the edges of things, offering experiences of simultaneous delight and revulsion. 


    Mendick received an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art, London. She was the recipient of the Alexandra Reinhardt memorial award in 2018 and was also selected for Jerwood Survey 2019. She was the recipient of the Henry Moore Foundation Artist Award in 2020, and the Future Generations Art Prize 2020. Recent solo and two-person exhibitions include: Goldsmiths CCA, London, Eastside Projects, Birmingham; Space, Ilford; Castor Projects, London; Hannah Barry Gallery, London; The Turnpike, Leigh; Zabludowicz Collection, London; Vitrine, Basel; Visual Arts Center, Austin, Texas; Oriel Wrexham, Wales; STCFTHOTS, Leeds and One Thoresby Street, Nottingham.  She has previously been commissioned to make new projects that included ceramic workshops at Kunstraum, London; The Turnpike Pottery, Leigh and for the Cheltenham Council.
