Jann Haworth was a pioneer of soft sculpture, a grammy award winner and a visionary of early pop art. She withstood sexism that prevented her artwork from being seen and used a sarcastic approach by utilizing materials unused by her male counterparts, including cloth, latex and sequins. Her rebellious nature aided in her innovative methods.
Haworth will be exhibiting at Art Paris in the Grand Palais. She describes her show in three words, double-edged, sarky and exploring. As well as being involved in countless group shows and winning numerous awards, Haworth has had a total of 18 solo shows. Within the world-renowned Art Paris: Art Fair there are 15 other solo exhibitors.
Haworth speaks to the event, “Art Paris is to me more compelling than any other Art Fair because of the magic of Paris. This particular year it is even more poignant in the light of recent tragic events. The political events are not addressed in the pieces- [I have done overtly political pieces in the past] but the intensity of the sorrow that we felt last November intensified my love and brought into sharp vivid focus what Paris represents on a personal level and made me realize how many people share this feeling. So as ever I make the best work I can- but being included in the Grand Palais- when people like Picasso and Francis Bacon showed there is very, very special to me and all the more intense that it is now. ”
