About

Alison Jacques Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition of work by the late New York feminist artist Hannah Wilke (1940-1993). This is the first solo exhibition of Hannah Wilke's work to be shown in the UK. The exhibition will focus on Wilke's early work, covering the period from the beginning of 1960s through to the end of the 70s. Throughout her career, Hannah Wilke dealt with issues of feminism and femininity. She began her career as a sculptor during the 1960s, when she started to make the vaginal ceramic forms that would reappear throughout her work. The body, in most instances her own, became her primary subject matter and the springboard for ceramic sculptures, latex wall pieces, chewing gum sculptures, and numerous performances, photographs, films and two dimensional works. This exhibition includes a selection of Wilke's early sculptures, films, drawings and collages alongside photographic works from her S.O.S. Starification Object Series.
