Lindsey Mendick (b.1987, London) lives and works in Margate, UK. Mendick received an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art, London in 2017. Mendick works predominantly with clay, a medium that is often associated with decoration and the domestic, subverting these historic connotations to create skilled monuments to ‘low culture’ and the contemporary female experience. Often culminating in elaborate installations, Mendick’s autobiographical work offers a form of catharsis, encouraging the viewer to explore their own personal history through the revisionist lens of the artist. Her work challenges the male gaze, promoting instead an unapologetic, humorous and, at times, grotesque femininity.

She was the recipient of the Henry Moore Foundation Artist Award in 2020, the Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award in 2018 and was also selected for Jerwood Survey 2019 and the Future Generations Art Prize 2020. Recent and forthcoming exhibitions include: Hayward Gallery, London Somerset House, London; Jeffrey Deitch, New York; Goldsmiths CCA, London; Cooke Latham, 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.

The easiest way to get to #Margate is by fast-train from St Pancras or Stratford International. The journey is around 1 hour 30 minutes. The gallery is a short walk from the station.
