Huxley-Parlour are delighted to present the fourth exhibition in their fourbythree programme: Ella Husbands, Undercurrent.

Husbands’ site-specific, mixed media installation explores disrupted, distorted, and fragmented sensory perception, deriving from the artist’s own experience living with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Ella Husbands will transform Huxley-Parlour’s downstairs exhibition space into an immersive sensory environment, combining wall hung works, geometric sculpture, and two projected videos, which explore the artist’s own experiences with altered perception. Husbands uses the aesthetic qualities of water as a metaphor for anxiety: both as an emotional salve and an agitator. Undercurrent emulates alternating preceptory environments, whilst speaking to the perpetual presence of Chronic Fatigue. Viewers are invited to consider their own, heightened senses whilst inhabiting the installation. Husbands’ wall hung works continue to explore contrasting states of being through conflict and reconciliation.

Ella Husbands graduated in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, London in 2017. She has exhibited internationally in group exhibitions at institutions such as Workspace Dunfermline, Scotland (2018), ONCA Barge, Brighton (2019), Luren Gallery, Suzhou, China (2019), Trinity Art Gallery, London (2019) and Menier Gallery, London (2020). Her work is informed by her experiences of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. She lives and works in Brighton.
