Henrietta Armstrongs recent work explores themes related to personal relics, the mystical unknown and ritualistic practices. Considering the hypocrisy between the Catholic Church’s veneration of relics and its historical condemnation of witchcraft. This contrast adds an intriguing layer to Armstrong’s exploration of religious artefacts and their cultural symbolism, urging viewers to reflect on the complex dynamics of the symbols, rituals and shifting perceptions that shape human belief systems. 

Henrietta was a finalist for the National Sculpture Prize 2021 and a runner up for the Soho House Art Prize 2020. Her work is now part of the Soho House permanent collection.
