The exhibition brings together four series of work, made over the past 20 years. The central theme considers the way our identities are connected to the physical space we live in, through an exploration of the transition and transformation of architectural spaces and urban structures.
One Paved Court Gallery provides an ideal space to explore these ideas, as it offers its own visible trace of architectural transformation.
Ute Haring is an artist whose practice encompasses various media including photography, printmaking and painting. Her work often centres around ideas of memory and place, the transitional nature of urban spaces and landscape, and its relationship with our individual identities.
Over the past two decades, her work has embraced many emotional, intellectual and physical spaces, but repeatedly returns to the industrial landscapes that provide a bridge between the remnants of a productive and hopeful past and a less certain existential future.
She moved to London in 1990 where she enrolled at Wimbledon School of Art. After graduating from WSA with a BA in Fine Art Painting and a subsequent MA degree in Printmaking, she further developed her printmaking skills during residencies at Künstlerhaus Hohenossig (near Leipzig, Germany), Artichoke Print Workshop London, Steindruck- Künstlerhaus München (Munich, Germany) and at Morley College, London.
She has had numerous exhibitions in the UK, Paris, Germany and Ireland. Her work is held in public and private collections.
