MINK SCHMINK a group exhibition- PV 15th January

Following the sad passing of Miss Eartha Kitt, who inspired the title of their upcoming show,
(‘Mink Schmink’ 17 Jan – 15 Feb 2009 Wilsonwilliams Gallery) WW feel they should pay tribute to her in someway.

The previews will feature a performance of ‘Mink Schmink’, Marilyn’s ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’ and more. This camp, blinging show flies in the face of the current economic gloom and cries out “Crunch this sister!”

“What have you got if you haven’t got love?” (Eartha Kitt, Mink Schmink)

Just like a timeless tune, or a legendary French perfume, this group exhibition has top notes of glamour, style and bling, mid notes of aspiration, beauty and mortality and lingering just a little longer than is comfortable are base notes of vanity, envy and greed.

Mink Schmink oscillates between high and low culture and draws in the gold-digging, superficial, fake, embroidered, wishful, delusional and longing worlds that fill our emotional voids.

This show is a colourful blast for all the senses, with sculpture, painting, photography, print and performance from Emma Barrow, Deni Francis, Phil Illingworth, Denise Mahon, Eleanor Moulsdale, Starchild, Boa Swindler, David Wightman, Chiara Williams and Irlanda Zantone.

WW is a new, friendly, artists’ run space in a professionally converted Victorian terraced house in Hackney, East London. With ambitious, themed and carefully curated shows that have been inspiring local journalists, artists and collectors, WW is both a positive, welcoming haven and great place to discover new talent.
