hospitality_bic_pen is a digital project by conceptual artist Delilah Sykes. The ongoing project emerged during spare time at bar and barista jobs with the materials at hand: biro and receipt paper. Perhaps absurdity and freedom go hand in hand, as these small improvised drawings reach for autonomy and result in the beautiful and the bizarre. The works are exhibited as photographic prints, snapped quickly in the places of work in which they were created. This is a project unfolding in real time on instagram; https://www.instagram.com/hospitality_bic_pen/
ABOUT THE ARTIST
I am an artist from London living and working in Leeds. Rooted in tenderness, my text-based practice examines the metaphysical by grounding it in the mundane. My writing exists as artefacts rather than literary works, situating them in a praxis of conceptual art. I have studied and exhibited in the UK and Finland, and featuring in exhibitions in galleries such as The Tetley, Leeds, and Amos Rex, Helsinki.
