Marie Harnett: What Was My Own
Cristea Roberts Gallery
43 Pall Mall, London SW1Y 5JG, UK
Cristea Roberts Gallery is pleased to announce a major exhibition of new works by British artist Marie Harnett (b. 1983), capturing fleeting moments of drama, beauty and suspense from contemporary film, that will go on show from 13 April to 15 May 2021. What Was My Own features over thirty new highly detailed, meticulous drawings, both large and minute in scale, derived from film stills. A sense of unease and melancholy pervades Harnett’s new work, as we are offered glimpses into scenes that present an emotion or history that is suddenly intimate and familiar to us.
What Was My Own is Harnett’s third solo exhibition at Cristea Roberts Gallery. Harnett recently completed a residency at The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, Connecticut, and her work will feature in a forthcoming exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh.
