Review of Flora Parrott's Patio Project '1000th' WW Gallery

April-May 2012 Reviews, press and interviews for Phil Illingworth 'Frightening Albert'
(Click here to take a slideshow tour of the exhibition >>>)

Friday 11th May 2012

'Event of the week',
Art Licks, April 9th

‘Illingworth has taken a spanking new space and pathological terror and turned them into something witty, engaging and colourful, making this an auspicious start for WW Gallery mark two.
Kate Weir, Spoonfed

‘The two-room, L-shaped gallery, resplendent in its whiteness, could
indeed be mistaken for a lab, and it would be no great leap to imagine
oneself shut in there alone, left to play with the objects on display,
perhaps subject to video observation from afar, as part of some social

Anna McNay, roves and roams

The process led to the realisation of what I see as a personal lexicon of materials, raw ideas, and visual syntax. I gave myself 'permission' to use this vocabulary to express other concepts, and from that point on I knew that my practice had expanded enormously.
Phil Illingworth on Jotta 'In Conversation: WW Gallery and Phil Illingworth'

"‘Frightening Albert' seems to embody, aesthetically and conceptually, what WW is all about.” In an attempt to pin-down this affinity, Williams and Wilson describe the show as “both bold and subtle, audacious without being pretentious, subversive and witty, visually and viscerally engaging, and above all superbly crafted.”

WW Gallery on Jotta 'In Conversation: WW Gallery and Phil Illingworth'

Art-e-facts Blog - Sandra Louison

"...the place was packed which made it difficult to see the work – so I shall have to make another visit – the work looks fascinating and I want to know more!"
Broughton Birnie Blog & video

‘a witty and materially rich show of new work' Lucy May

"This month you might have walked past the WW Gallery Patio Projects on the Queensdown Road without a second glance. No snowmen made from mud or wax kebabs, April’s project, Penny Sadubin’s Urban Bluebells has been masquerading as a typical patio-garden.
April certainly has been the cruellest month, but despite endless rain and mysterious hail storms, Sadubin’s bluebells have flowered.  This Sunday, 29 April, the unassuming Urban Bluebells will take on their real meaning as public art when they are donated to Hackney Downs and planted in the park..

The WW SOLO Award is a structured opportunity, created to provide support and development for contemporary artists working in any medium and at all stages in their career. WW is one of London’s leading contemporary artist-led spaces with a reputation for consistently forward-thinking and innovative projects and with sites in Clerkenwell and Hackney...more info...

Supported by RHA Design, State Magazine and Jackson's Framing.

"On the afternoon that I go to meet Hanae Utamura, the first ‘intervention’ into her WW Gallery Patio Project ‘CONSTRUCT: Fountain’ has just occurred. The wind and rain has brought her installation down; the fountain head is resting on the patio wall and fragments of plaster have scattered the pavement." Full article here

"On the horizon, one of Hackney's most innovative contemporary art galleries are also on the move to Clerkenwell, as WW Gallery bring their signature mix of glamour and edge to a 1,200 square foot ground floor space on Hatton Garden." Full article here

Themes of history, memory, re-creation and the social power of architecture are explored in the work of Kirsty Tinkler at WW's current show. The Australian artist's sculptural work is presented as part of WW Gallery's "Patio Projects" series of outdoor site-specific works. Full article here

Opening night: Thursday 16th February,18:00-21.00
Then from: Friday 17th - Wednesday 22nd February 2012

Stable States brings together six contemporary artists working across a range of disciplines and media, featuring Elaine Johnson, Yasmina Chami, Anna Haward, Mark Rose, Sadie Hennessy and Ben Gooding. Full info here

"Kirsty’s work challenges directly the old argument that ‘art doesn’t have a function’. She’s interested in chimneys which we no longer use, fake fireplaces, coving and pilasters and porticoes, which are merely ‘façade and ornamentation’. As an Australian, confronted by unfamiliar architecture, she recognises London ‘deceiving’ and ‘excluding’ its residents and visitors. Appearing older and more opulent than its reality, London’s architecture represents ‘politics’ and ‘power’..."

For her participation in the group show 'Urban Nature', artist Eva Lis grew mushrooms on a broken monument made of concrete. During the private view on the 18th November, the artist fried the mushrooms with eggs and served it to the audience. Accompanying the sculpture are a series of photographs of trees and a presentation (held on 19th November) about nomadic architecture in the UK.

Anna McNay in TimeOut: "Boa Swindler's A Secretary (After Sander)...plays with notions of gender ambiguity, gender roles, and the “high society 'sport' of gender checking”. The image, based on August Sander's famous photograph from 1931 and referencing the Weimar era Drag Queens, is seemingly equally pertinent in modern day London..."

"Latvian-born Inguna Gremzde’s current practice consists of miniature landscapes painted in plastic bottle caps. The use of these brightly-coloured milk and juice tops affords the landscapes a neat conceptual container, a theoretical framework, and a self-conscious sense of unease in their hybrid status as painting, object and installation."

30/09/2011 OCTOBER’S MULTITUDE OF OPTIONS by Paul Carey-Kent | Preview of Liane Lang's House Guests
"Rudyard Kipling is a rare bird in contemporary art, and I tend to think of him as strongly English and colonial - so it comes as a jolt to be reminded that from 1892-96 he lived in Vermont. Liane Lang’s mixture of film and installation will enable us to enter the atmosphere of Naulakha, Kipling’s isolated house in the Connecticut River Valley, and to consider Kipling in light of the shifting historical boundaries of what constitute racism, imperialism and condescension. And this is showing in an appropriately Victorian house. My own engagement may be enhanced by the face from which Lang cast her Kipling – mine!"

Afternoon Tea at the Quaffers Pavilion

"Run by London-based WW Gallery. After viewing the drawing exhibition in this pop-up gallery, I'm invited upstairs to a traditional British afternoon tea. What's not to like?"

Clashing with the London riots when unveiled on Monday 8th August, Mudman had a close call as we reported in our August newsletter and the poignancy of Mudman's message received press coverage in The New York Observer, in FAD, in ArtLyst, and (rather sensationally given the image chosen for the article) in Art Daily.

Axis interview with Debra Wilson & Chiara Williams from WW Gallery.

"Debra Wilson and Chiara Williams, Directors of WW Gallery, talk to us about their unusual project space located in a Victorian terraced house in Hackney, East London."

Features work from the MacGuffin by Wendy Elia & Marguerite Horner, as well as examples of work from previous shows by Flora Parrott, Liane Lang, Eva Lis, Holly Slingsby and Jessica Herrington and pictures of Afternoon Tea at the 54th Venice Biennale.

Lucy May presented her first live work, Hospitality, 6-9pm on Thursday 7th July at WW Gallery (for TimeOut First Thursday)

Click here to view pictures of the event.

A live video link from the artist's studio conveyed the manufacture of fake Bombay Mix, exploring themes of the handmade, repetitive labour and fakery. The work is an irreverent take on the idea of DIY hospitality, and a rebellious statement against the current abhorrence of the artist's hand in contemporary practice.

27/06/2011 press for The MacGuffin | Wendy Elia & Marguerite Horner | 1 - 17 July 2011
"All but the last of my choices this month are in galleries of which one can imagine the casual passer-by remaining unaware, even if they walk right by. Carlson and Sprovieri are hidden up on the second floors either side of Heddon Street. Nor do Ritter / Zamet, Simon Oldfield, Laurent Delaye or The Approach have any street level presence. WW is in the gallerists’ house in Hackney. The Skylon is primarily a restaurant. How come, then, we start with Hauser & Wirth?...WW Gallery presents a neatly-themed show: paintings seen as film stills by playing off the Hitchcockian notion of ‘The MacGuffin’ – the incidental device which triggers the suspense. Marguerite Horner’s rather beautifully mysterious modulations, in a key of grey with occasional startles of colour, often filter their air of the ominous through the MacGuffin of trees and power lines. Wendy Elia half-counters a wider range of MacGuffins - from shoes to ships to patchings of tape - through a more upbeat use of colour."


" far the most enjoyable part of the 54th Venice Biennale involved having a cup of tea with the directors of WW Gallery...taking over a beautiful apartment in Campo San Polo...Chiara Williams and Debra Wilson are showing a careful selection of small-scale works on paper, while upstairs they serve tea and quite delightful home-made cupcakes to a small group of guests." (Tom Jeffreys on FAD)

"During the vernissage, while the art world continued sipping Prosecco, Flint took time to have afternoon tea with the directors of Hackney based WW Gallery who are displaying their artists on paper accompanied by cupcakes and earl grey in Campo San Polo.  An inventive show from two new and inspiring London curators, Debra Wilson and Chiara Williams." (Marta Crunelli on Flint PR)

"a slice of heaven - a moment of indulgent rest amongst the frenetic pace of the Biennale opening week. And unusually for the Biennale, the work could be fully appreciated after viewing as you took a nice half hour to sit back and be served a slice of Britain in the middle of Venice." (Alicia Miller on Axis)

The Week:
"Sadie Hennessy's Hairbrush recalls Meret Oppenheim's famous fur cup and saucer"
The Independent:
"The most charming feature of the exhibition is Sadie Hennessy’s ‘Shoal’ – a collection of bits of used soap of varying colours, sizes and shapes, which carefully laid side by side on a silver trolley resemble pebbles on a beach or tropical fish. The curator tells me that the artist spent a long time collecting bits of used soap from friends and family (some of whom were reluctant to pass on such an intimate item), having found that replicating the crusty, cracked form bits of squished soap take over time is impossible to fake."



09/03/2011 Jarik Jongman in Charity Art Auction at Bonhams for Paintings in Hospitals
WW is delighted that Jarik Jongman's beautiful prize-winning painting Phenomena #5 has just sold at Bonhams for £7000, raising loads for the fantastic charity Paintings in Hospitals! The auction, held at Bonhams on Tuesday 8th March, raised over £42,000. The Paintings in Hospitals collection includes over 4000 works by a number of important artists and is the only national organisation of its type, providing visual arts services to more than 230 healthcare facilities.

01/03/2011 Preview of upcoming shows by Paul Carey-Kent:
"WW Gallery’s ‘art supermarket’ made a good impression at the London Art Fair, and the positive vibe should continue in March. Australian artist Jessica Herrington’s ‘Cave’ of crystalline growth conjured from ephemera will be something of a woman-made rapid-result antipode to Roger Hiorns’ room-filling copper sulphate growth ‘Seizure’ (2009-10). It’s followed by Spanish photographer Gustavo Murillo’s series using a macro lens to magnify parts of television pictures, reducing them to op/pop/ phosphor dot abstractions which stand as ciphers of the underlying image while reflecting gallery-goers as if the screen were turned off."

• A beautiful Ian Davenport acrylic on paper striped study in lilac.
• A ‘Places of Change’ screen-print by Bridget Riley, who is currently celebrated in an exhibition at
the National Gallery.
• Jonathan Trayte’s luscious contemporary painted bronze sculpture, by one of 2010’s most
heralded graduates from the Royal Academy Schools.
• Jarik Jongmans contribution: the contemporary painting Phenomena #5 was selected for the
Threadneedle Prize 2010 and won First Prize at the National Open Art Competition 2010.
• A strikingly beautiful painting by Gerry Judah, who has received widespread acclaim for his
recent work at the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester.

19-23/01/2011 "The London Art Fair in Islington was in top form this year, with a good selection of emerging galleries and Artists in 'Art Projects'. The section featured 30 international solo and group exhibitions. My personal favourite was WW Gallery's 'Supermarket Sweep' an installation of a superstore for Contemporary Art."

Drink & Dial Call for Submissions!
Deadline fast approaching: 31 January 2010,
but it's not too late to take part...

If you've missed our previous bulletins and are thinking, what's Drink & Dial? is the title of our forthcoming 6 week exhibition, which runs 26 March - 6 May.

Drink & Dial is the universal tendency of making regrettable phone calls while intoxicated. Artists are invited to respond to the concept in any way they choose, all media considered, all artists eligible.
