Nice words in the It’s Nice That Annual (London) :o)

Jennilee Marigomen describes her subject matter as “everyday” although in her hands this becomes something much more enigmatic and bewitching. While some of the Canadian’s photographs contain ambiguous narrative threads which we are left to decipher through the prism of our own preconceptions, others are more straightforward yet no less enticing. Her use of light in particular imbues the apparently mundane with qualities far beyond what we’d normally expect and the ethereal atmospheres she is able to conjure from the most unusual set-ups earmark her as a real star.

Guerrilla Girls

This work shows the boundaries women had to face before they had more rights. It was rare for art work by women or non-white artists to be shown and the Guerrilla Girls posters brought to light the issues that these artists faced. The posters were a quick and easy way to spread their message while the statistics were created by the Guerilla Girls themselves or reinterpreted from art magazines or other sources. Again their art represents social boundaries.
