Anna Reading


London based artist working in sculpture, installation, moving image and performance. A recent graduate from the Slade School of Fine Art, and currently Artist in Residence at Hong Kong Academy for Visual Arts. The multi-disciplinary work is rooted in an interest of boundaries and borders and the uncertainty of where one thing ends and another begins. Hand-made objects and animations  explore the unsettled positioning of the body within controlled and virtual environments, between organic and architecture, ancient and futuristic.
