"Hope And Glory: Rachel Wilberforce"
2005-06-14 until 2005-07-01
Gallery Chaos presents Hope And Glory an exhibition by London photographic and video artist Rachel Wilberforce. Hope And Glory is an exhibition about the proximity of one’s desire and hope against the backdrop of contemporary concern exploring issues of identity, ethics, frustration, fear and vanity.
Rachel Wilberforce’s agile images, both bizarre and gorgeous, deliberately playful, highly polished, wildly colourful, on one level escapist even, contain some degree of fantasy but are never sweet or innocent.
Challenging and engaging, the effervescent physicality of Wilberforces work is the key to its conspicuous power. By presenting images that question whats OK and whats not she breaks Pandoras box wide open.
