Anna Barriball:

Anna Barriball (b. 1972, Plymouth, UK) lives and works in London. Studied at Winchester School of Art and Chelsea College of Art and Design. Barriball’s work hinges on minimal interactions with objects and often steps between the parallel languages of drawing and sculpture. Her interventions produce objects that combine a minimalistic rigour and the seemingly endless endeavour to make sense of the world of objects by empirical study. Select solo exhibitions include Be-Part, Waregem, Belgium (2017); Frith Street Gallery, London, UK (2016); Frith Street Gallery, London (2013); Galleri Bo Bjerggaard, Copenhagen (2013); Museum Villa Stuck, Munich (2013); Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh (2012); Milton Keynes Gallery (2011); and Frith Street Gallery, London (2009). Select group exhibitions include Drawing Now, Albertina Museums, Vienna (2015); Drawing: The Bottom Line, S.M.A.C.K., Gent (2015); Apparitions: Frottage and Rubbings from 1860 to Now, The Menil Collection, Houston and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, USA (2015); Drawing Biennial 2015, Drawing Room, London (2015); Silver, Frith Street Gallery, London (2014); i8 Gallery, Reykjavik, Iceland (2013); OSL Contemporary, Oslo (2013); Drawing Biennial 2013, Drawing Room, London (2013); Drawing: Sculpture, Drawing Room, London (2013); Slow Looking:Contemporary Drawing, Tate Britain, London, UK (2012); and Prospects and Interiors: Sculptor’s Drawings of Inner Space, Henry Moore Institute/Leeds City Art Gallery (2008).
