About Simon Linington (Isle of Wight, United Kingdom, 1983) View artist profile >>

London-based artist Simon Linington has preserved a mopped floor's liquid in it's original state, along with a year's recollected trash, as a manifest of measuring the passage of time. "I think it’s natural to try and preserve something you have an attachment to, that’s falling apart." There's a fine line between life and work, private and public, or material and place within his works. His site-specific pieces display the artist's personal feelings about the environment he lives and works in. By viewing the landscape or exhibition space as an empty body, he can then add a mood or feeling onto it. It makes sense that his current solo show "Everything Is Medicine" is taking place in a home environment. Lily Brooke, London is playing host to a variety of Simon's works, including a recurring textile piece, placed in between the gaps of the wall, or an installation incorporating rocks with hidden messages amongst other works. 

Simon Linington (b. 1983 Isle of Wight) graduated in Sculpture at Chelsea College of Arts in 2006. He has exhibited at Lily Brooke, London; Divison of Labour, London; the Museum of Contemporary Art Project Space, London; The Arts Gallery, London, Space In Between, London, Departure Gallery, London; Fold Gallery, London; James Taylor Gallery, London; amongst others. He has been awarded the Emerging Artist Bursary from the Royal British Society of Sculptors (2010) and was a finalist at the Best Emerging Sculptor in Britain award (2012), at Christies. Residencies include Pivo, Sao Paulo; Emma Thomas, Sao Paulo; Los Gazquez, Spain; Culture Vultures, Morocco. Simon is currently living and working in London.
