The Bakery shows Pull Back the Shade by Muzi Quawson (1978, London, England), a slide series about a young woman and her family and friends the artist has been following for some time. The scene is set in Woodstock. Romance and in particular the ideal of freedom connected with this famous place conflict with the problems with which the young adults are struggling. The images form a loose narrative of everyday life. Muzi Quawson documents not just the personal story, her images carry intensity larger than life turning the persons into characters from a motion picture.
Muzi Quawson is studying at the Royal College of Art in London and has been awarded several prices. In its next edition, Art Review will dedicate an extensive article to her. Pull Back the Shade was recently shown at the Tate Britain Triennial: New British Art.
