This Weeks Artist of The Week Winner is Sally Hogarth!


A descendant of William Hogarth, Sally's work often engages with the exchanges, moral values and private spheres of the virtual internet society. Sally Hogarth is a Manx born artist who studied Fine Art and Art History at Goldsmiths College.  In recent years she has exhibited for curators of the South London Gallery, Bob and Roberta Smith and  Deptford X Art Festival . She has also received  exhibition  funding from Ideas Tap, The Arts Council and The John Nicholson Foundation. Last year, out of 400 applicants she received a six month ‘Big Idea Award’ selected by Kevin Spacey.  In 2008 she  was  awarded a sculpture commission by BAA for  the newly opened Heathrow Terminal Five. In 2009-2010 she completed a full year artist residency funded by the Isle of Man Arts Council culminating in an exhibition at the Sayle Gallery. She has also created a video installation at Cregneash Village in association with Manx National Heritage. She is currently taking postgraduate studies at Central Saint Martins in Fine Art. In all, her work aims to allow one to take a fresh look at the cultural landscape we live in, its values and the aspirations it presents to us.


Describe Sally Hogarth in one word?

Your favourite place to visit?

The Isle of Man. While I only go back occasionally now, the tranquillity, cultural history and solace you can find compares to nowhere else. I’m also reminded of a folk song we used to sing at school – ‘ And the Laxey Wheel keeps turning, turning, turning/ In Lady Isabella's memory / And while the water flows / The Laxey Wheel still goes/ And the Laxey river runs down to the sea’. I’d like to think of the lines ‘while the water flows the Laxey wheel still goes’ as a constant – wherever you are, and whatever you’re doing, certain things will stay the same.

Where did your internet fascination stem from?
It stems from an idea of the internet being simultaneously public and private.

Who do you love to hate in the art world?

Arts managers who use interns as free labour.

What is your signature identity?
My assigned identity is a Gallerina.
Top three artists?

Glen Edwards, Mark McGowan and Kirsty Buchanan

If you were going to watch a film tonight what would you put on?
