Heidi Hinder @The New Medallists
The New Medallists, an exhibition at the V&A, opens 11th February and runs until 19th August 2012. The British Art Medal Society have been working with the V&A on The new medalist scheme and this exhibition shows the work of six medal sculptors.
Heidi Hinder is showing works alongside Natasha Ratcliffe, Petra Mills, Sara Richards, Chloe Shaw and Phoebe Stannard.
"Heidi Hinder comes to medal-making from jewellery: many of her medals are constructed as assembled pieces. After graduating from Birmingham City University’s School of Jewellery, she was artist-in-residence there when she became the 2010-11 New Medallist. Attracted to medals as objects invested with meaning, Hinder places perception at the heart of her thought and making process. Her medals show her interest in optical devices, sciences and literature."
