Joey Holder opens her latest show, HYDROZOAN, at Liverpool’s The Royal Standard, running as part of the Liverpool Biennial from September 26 to October 26.
Holder’s work extends across a range of disparate media; she paints and sculpts, but also creates videos and builds installations and manages multiple image streams, exploring the “structures and hierarchies of the technological and natural world” through the various forms and their abstractions.
This exhibition comes as the result a six-month residency Holder completed with Near Now in Nottingham, working with genome scientists and biochemists to research future urban farming methods and commercial fish farming. Holder’s answer is a gallery simulation of an ‘Aquaponics’ system: “a food production method that combines conventional aquaculture with hydroponics”.

It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up.
