Zoe Williams

Zoe Williams (b. 1983, Salisbury, UK) is a London-based artist who graduated with a Masters of Fine Art from The Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow in 2012. Her practice incorporates a range of mediums, including moving image, ceramics, drawing and performance, and is often collaborative in its process and outcome. These elements are combined to create immersive objects and environments, which conjure a playful and corrosive interchange between notions of the erotic, craft, magic, gender, hedonism and excess. Through the cross contamination of these influences, she wishes to provoke conversations around the pressures of power, the politics of sex and the economics of production. Her work explores the shifting use values of objects and rituals through history and within contemporary society. Recent solo exhibitions include those at Ciaccia Levi Gallery, Paris (2021-22);Mimosa House, London (2019); Riva Tunnel, Monte-Carlo (2019); Galerie Antoine Levi, Paris (2018); Studio Amaro, Naples, Italy (2018); and David Roberts Art Foundation, London (2017).
