Part of Estuary Broadcasts, curated by RTM.FM for Estuary 2021 - to be broadcast on Saturday 29 May.
Anne Hardy is internationally recognised for her photography and large-scale sculptural installations or 'fieldworks' which combine physical materials with light and sound to create immersive and sensual environments. These works derive from places she calls ‘pockets of wild space’ – gaps in the urban space where materials, atmospheres, and emotions gather. Hardy thinks of these works as moments out of time – voids within the ‘everyday’ space, that act as a spell or dream in which to re-encounter our relationships to the worlds that we inhabit.
She has exhibited in the UK and internationally with recent new works / solo exhibitions at Tate Britain:-
- 'The Depth of Darkness, the Return of the Light’ (2019/20)
- ‘The Weather Garden, Anne Hardy curates the Arts Council Collection’, Towner Art Gallery (2019)

- and group exhibitions at Marta Herford, The Hayward Gallery London, New Art Gallery Walsall, V&A Museum, Barbican Art Gallery.
Hardy was Artist in Residence at Camden Arts Centre in 2011, and in 2014 she took up a residency at Modern Art oxford-Live in the Studio-to develop a performance work. Her work is held in major public collections including Tate, V&A Museum, Arts Council Collection, Leeds Art Gallery.
