LR Vandy Biography

In her sculptures, LR Vandy brings together both found and made objects in order to create new meaning. In her Hull series, Vandy transforms model boat hulls into ‘masks’, animating them with various materials, including fishing floats, porcupine quills and acupuncture needles. The hulls allude to the transportation of migrants as commodities. As masks they present a transformation of identity, drawing upon the tradition of talismans, charms and amulets. Her work Railway also closely examines transport systems and their hidden human costs. Vandy threads old model railway tracks across burnt wood of different depths, contained by brass borders. Her sculpture series These Women, consists of twenty-one individual, dynamic sculptures, each one a different variation of bold geometric elements. A large Jesmonite sculpture from the series Superhero Cog-Woman, acting as a tribute to women throughout time, was selected to be shown at Frieze Sculpture 2019, The Regents Park, London, UK.

Vandy made her sell-out debut with October Gallery at 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair, London in 2018, which was followed by her highly anticipated first solo show at the Gallery in June 2019. The artist’s work was also exhibited as part of the exhibition Get Up, Stand Up Now, 2019 at Somerset House. She is represented in many private collections and her work European, 2015 was recently acquired by the British Museum.
