To coincide with a major exhibition of the artist’s work at Studio Voltaire, William Scott has curated a series of artworks which are presented across our neighbourhood in Clapham, London.
Working closely with landmark sites in the area, including Clapham Methodist Church and the Deep Level Shelter at Clapham Common as well as utilising advertising billboards, the presentation animates Studio Voltaire’s neighbourhood and provides unique moments for residents and visitors to encounter Scott’s practice in the everyday.
While deeply rooted in personal history, Scott’s paintings address wider questions of citizenship, community and cultural memory. Frequently describing himself as an architect, his works reimagine the social topography of his native San Francisco, as well as self-portraits and depictions of family members, his neighbours and women from the Baptist church he has attended since childhood.
The artworks can be seen until 2 January 2022.
