Samantha Donnelly (b. 1978 in UK) lives and works in London, England.
Donnelly’s practice is concerned with the fluidity of representations; specifically the shifting relationship between the (physical) object and the (photographic) subject. Her work explores the balance between the signified and the embodied; matter and commerce; the depicted against the transitory.
Recent exhibitions include: ‘Rubbernecker’, Ceri Hand Gallery, London, England (2014); ‘Tip of the Iceberg’, Contemporary Art Society, London, England (2013); ‘A Private Affair’, Harris Museum, Preston, England (2012); ‘Contour States’, Cornerhouse, Manchester, England (2012); ‘The Shape We’re In’, 176 / Zabludowicz Collection, London, England (2011); ‘Compendium’, Vitrine Gallery, London, England (2010).
