Description

Works by some of the leading names in contemporary art are being displayed at Fitzrovia Chapel in an exploration of witchcraft, womanhood, feminism and satire.

The Witch Burns includes artists whose works delve deep into our continuing obsession with witches, female power and proto-religious imagery. A new work by Sue Webster will also be shown for the first time.

To many, the witch figure has been associated with evil and persecution for almost 1,000 years. The counterview that gives rise to the witch as a symbol of power and feminine resistance has been growing for some time, helping us re-evaluate the role and representation of women and anyone who is deemed as ‘other’ in society.

The works on display will show how contemporary art is currently challenging and redefining concepts of power, persecution and piety. By inverting religious iconography and classic Christian imagery, modern feminist thought can be brought to the concept of the witch, deconstructing the myth into something different for the 21st century.
