Harley Kuyck-Cohen (b.1994, UK), is an early career assemblage artist represented by LUNGLEY Gallery (London). He is currently living and working in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Working in sculpture and installation – his practice addresses how our interior thoughts shape the exterior space. Colliding domestic spaces alongside polluted environments, questions of utopias and dystopias are formed to magnify current states of living, our emotive construction of space and public sites of assembly.
Model making is often an excuse for sculpture, bricolage acts as a means to talk about architecture. Constantly moving between scales, Harley Kuyck-Cohen’s sculptures and installation makes a fantasy out of common space and our shared bodies.
Harley Kuyck-Cohen has been shortlisted for The Mark Tanner Sculpture Award, The Wood Prize in Sculpture and Painting, Bloomberg New Contemporaries and the Exeter Contemporary.
The artist has exhibited two solo shows – Allotment (Airspace Gallery, Stoke-on-Trent, 2019), and St. Paul’s Cathedral (Lungley Gallery, London, 2019), both of which explore the city of the exhibition as a means to reflect on its socio-cultural landscape.
