Belfast-born British artist Cathy Wilkes will be representing Great Britain at the 58th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2019. Wilkes will present a major new solo exhibition at the British Pavilion between 11 May and 24 November. Renowned for her distinctive and highly personal sculptural installations featuring humanoid figures that highlight the tender intimacy of everyday life, Wilkes' exhibition will feature new paintings and sculptures that will provoke a strong emotional response in viewers, set against the backdrop of the grand architecture of the British Pavilion. Narratives and histories which often evoke interiors and places of loss or solitude are suggested through her evocative objects but never explicitly expressed, and indeed Wilkes resists written descriptions and explanations of her work, intentionally not naming her installations, assemblages and exhibitions in a bid to keep open the viewer's perceptions.
