Bedwyr Williams - Older Artist

Tue-Sat: 11-6pm

Older Artist is an exhibition of new work by Bedwyr Williams. Taking forms and narratives developed over the past several years, including new sculptural lightboxes and paintings, Williams sketches interior and exterior lives, internal dialogues and interpersonal exchanges with a precision both caustic and poignant.

Older Artist anchors its attention on long-standing art world inhabitants, drawn or painted as they occupy the bright white rooms in which they have worked, talked, socialised and received acclaim; where they have held power and influence. Williams hones in on particularities of self-presentation, both lived and captured through social media platforms: the pale flesh of a bare ankle between shoe and trouser hem; the specific silhouette of a carefully chosen outfit; the glinting nose ring and pointed stare of an artist who, you sense, doesn't like you.  

Older Artist is accompanied by Instagram Tales, a new limited-edition publication produced by PageMasters.
