Born in United Kingdom.

Lives and works in London, United Kingdom.

Anne Hardy is internationally recognised for her photography and large-scale sculptural installations or ‘FIELDWORKS’, which combine physical materials with light and sound to create immersive and sensual environments. These works derive from places she calls ‘pockets of wild space’ – gaps in the urban space where materials, atmospheres, and emotions gather.  Hardy thinks of these works as moments out of time – voids within the ‘everyday’ space, that act as a spell or dream in which to re-encounter our relationships to the worlds that we inhabit. 

In 2019 Anne Hardy was commissioned by Tate Britain, London to create ‘The Depth of Darkness, the Return of the Light’ for their annual Winter Commission and was invited to curate the Arts Council Collection, creating a site specific sensory installation, ‘The Weather Garden’ at Towner Art Gallery, UK (2019). Hardy was also included in the landmark touring exhibition British Art Show 9, 2021-2022.

In January 2022 she completed a site specific commission ‘Meteor’ for the exhibition CRAZY, curated by Danilo Eccher at Chiostro del Bramante,Rome and in June 2022 she exhibited ‘Two Joined Fields’ at the Merz Foundation in Turin, as part of the shortlist for Mario Merz Prize. In Nov/Dec 2022 she was artist in residence at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas. 

Recent exhibitions and commissions include ‘Survival Spell’ Maureen Paley, London (2024) ‘Tides’ Yutaka Kikutake Gallery, Tokyo, Japan (2023), ‘Rising Heat’ Maureen Paley, London (2021), ‘Sensory Spaces #13, Liquid Lanscape’, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Netherlands (2018), Museum Marta Herford Museum, Germany (2018), ‘Falling and Walking’ at Leeds Art Gallery (2018) and ArtNight, London (2017).

Hardy’s works are held in major public collections including; Tate, Victoria and Albert Museum, British Council, Arts Council Collection, and Leeds Art Gallery. Hardy has held artist residencies at Chinati Foundation, Marfa in 2022; Camden Arts Centre, London in 2011 and Live in the Studio at Modern Art Oxford in 2014.
