George Henry Longly @ Studio Leigh, Sep 22- Oct 29

, 21 September 2016

George Henry Longly is presenting solo exhibition Indiscretion at London’s Studio Leigh, opening September 22 and running to October 29.

The London-based artist works across media, including sculpture, video, audio and performance. For his latest body of work, he employs a range of materials, marble and copper-plated aluminium among them, to make sculptures that are both free-standing and wall based. The press release provides some background into his ongoing research into “consumer fantasy, branding and notions of museology” as we are invited to “see his work and a transformed gallery space as a whole and substantively in order to reconsider the status and narrative capacity of objects.”

Longly has recently exhibited We All Love Your Life (2016) at New York’s Red Bell Studios, Volume Excess (2015) at Glasgow’s Koppe Astner, and GHL (2013) as part of London’s Serpentine Park Nights.
