“Employing photography, film, digitally generated imagery, games design and sculpture, Henry's work is totally contemporary in it's exploration of the speed at which the digital and virtual worlds are developing and the serious issues and questions that this raises. He creates shifting and shimmering imagery that seduces the eye, the technical virtuosity always in service to his purpose and enwrapping the viewer.” Barbara Dougan (Engage Journal editor, 2016)
I have shown both internationally and across the UK, exhibiting at Tate Liverpool, as well as multiple times at Tate Britain. On an international stage my work has been shown in Berlin, Toronto, Melbourne, Montreal, Copenhagen and Sydney, as well as my videos being broadcast in over 40 countries. While nationally, I have shown at Wysing Arts Centre, Whitechapel Gallery, Vivid Projects, Firstsite and Enclave Projects.
In the summer of 2014, my interactive video installation ‘Odyssey’ was selected by Mark Leckey to be exhibited at Tate Liverpool for two weeks for the Blueprint Festival Exhibition. Following this, it was shortlisted and exhibited in York for the global Aesthetica Art Prize 2016. I was then selected and published in the XL Catlin Guide 2016 “…this guide brings together art’s next big names” (Dazed & Confused Magazine, 2016).
Key commissions include the creation of an interactive live video installation for Cambridge Assessment, Commission Projects and e-Luminate Festival in Feb 2017, and the creation of a multi-channel video installation for Red Bull Music Studios, London, August 2016.
In March 2017 I was provided a R&D grant by Collusion to explore innovative and critical uses of virtual and augmented reality. Most recently, I was selected for alt_Barbican a major new accelerator for innovative artists working at the intersection of art and technology.
