Henrietta Armstrong is a multimedia artist and curator based in London, specialising in sculpture, installation and public art. She looks at man-made objects and structures from everyday technologies that are often obsolete or defunct, and the symbolism or meaning that we imbue them with. Her recent work has been looking at the brutalist forms of sea defences, sea erosion and the global threat of rising sea levels due to global warming.
Recent projects include ‘Throwing Bones’ her finalist entry for the National Sculpture Prize 2021 at the sculpture park at Broomhill Estate in Devon, as well as creating an exclusive print edition with Soho House & Jealous Gallery for Soho Home after being selected as a runner up for the Soho House Art Prize 2020. Armstrong is currently working on a public art commission for the village of Tytherington, commissioned by Cotswold Homes & South Gloucestershire Council, to create a permanent sculpture celebrating Tytherington’s history as well as integrating the growing community.
