Who Cracks the Whip?: Angharad Williams | Mousse | article
Welsh artist Angharad Williams’s eclectic practice encompasses diverse forms—from painting to sculpture, as well as video, installations, and performances. These expressions are informed by questions around authority, speech, and class. Due to the constraints of the pandemic, Williams’s work has become more static and materially concerned, yet her strongly performative nature is still palpable, hinting at a will to escape from the structures of the establishment. Influenced by popular culture, literature, and current events, her works explore the unstable nature of humankind, its intrinsic wildness, and the sensuality and violence embedded in the most banal, seemingly unspectacular situations.
