Visual Arts Residency
Xenia Bond (b. 1992, London) works in sculpture and installation. She graduated from the Stäedelscule in Frankfurt under Judith Hopf and the Slade School of Fine Art in London. Bond’s exhibitions include: Husslehof, APT Gallery, Zona Mista, Studio Picknick, and Neue Alte Brücke. She is interested in the formal relationship of materials and their reception as emotives, and communicating external relationships in her life. Bond’s works are neither immersive nor “looking outside.” These polarities are avoided. Instead the aim is to provoke a reaction between the imagination of the self and the viewer. The drift of signs and possible narratives, both concrete and imagined, characterize Bond’s works.
