Nick Hornby

InSitu work closely with clients to develop art programmes that enhance employee experience, stimulate critical thinking and enable creative exchange. Artist residencies provide a platform for artists to create new work while inspiring organisations, enhancing their wellbeing programmes, valuing community, social engagement, diversity, equity and inclusion. 

Hornby’s work is known for his art-historical references and use of digital technology. His residency provided opportunities for employees to gain insight into his practice and appreciate a wider understanding of an artist working with sculpture. Hornby curated exhibitions and interventions in the public spaces of the firm that featured works by acclaimed key Modernists Henry Moore, Arthur Fleischmann and Eduardo Paolozzi alongside work by contemporary sculptors Oliver Beer, Zuza Mengham and Alex Massouras. Throughout the residency his large scale sculptures were exhibited at regular intervals and included collaborative pieces with the painter Sinta Tantra, also known for her large scale public art commissions. Hornby took employees on a tour of the acclaimed 'Sculpture in the City', discussing works from the critical perspective of a sculptor. He wrote monthly art insights and recommendations, provided invitations to his gallery shows and public art commissions, gave studio visits, talks and a tour of Bronze Age London sculpture foundry.
