Review of Directors’ Cut: Chiara Williams / Boa Swindler at WW Gallery


Directors’ Cut:
Chiara Williams / Boa Swindler

WW Gallery

30 October – 30
November 2013

On the surface of it, Chiara Williams and Debra Wilson, aka
Boa Swindler, are truly chalk and cheese, not just to look at, but also in
terms of their artistic style. Nevertheless, their joint dynamic has
successfully been running WW Gallery for the past five years, with a
flourishing programme of solo and group exhibitions, off-site projects, an annual
SOLO award, and valuable surgeries for budding artists. Their current
exhibition, however, is the first to bring together the pair’s own works,
contrasting glamour with edge, the elite with the everyday, the surface with
what lies beneath, all from the viewpoint of women concerned with their
appearance, their bodies, and how society sees and accepts – or rejects – them.
