Caroline Walker: Windows

Caroline Walker: Windows

28 August - 28 November 2021
KM21, The Hague, The Netherlands

Overview

'Windows' at KM21, Caroline Walker explores themes of privacy and voyeurism from an engaged perspective. The exhibition brings together large-scale canvases and intimate portraits depicting anonymous women in environments that blur the line between private and public. The exhibition includes more than twenty paintings made since 2016, including four specially created new works and a recent acquisition by Kunstmuseum Den Haag being shown for the first time. 'Measuring', 2019 depicts a tailor absorbed in her work at a workshop on Savile Row. The painting is part of a larger series on the workshops in London, many of which are housed in basements. Working women, particularly in the services sector, are an important subject for Walker. In this way, she gives a face to the ‘female labour force’, which is often taken for granted or even intentionally kept out of sight.
