ICA Bookstore Selection: Penny World

Penny World is an exhibition spanning the last 30 years of work by London artist and poet Penny Goring. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in a public institution and includes a selection of art works from her expansive practice. Presented here are vividly coloured paintings and sculptures, self-portraits and drawings, and darkly humorous digital collages and videos. Relentlessly direct, the artist’s poetry is entangled throughout – appearing in titles and stitched onto her fabric sculptures.

Hatefuck The Reader, Penny Goring (Arcadia Missa, 2022)

First published by 5everdankly in 2016.

“This book is about damage and violence, about the ramifications of channeling intensity at all costs. It is a text that is utterly compelling, that you tumble into and cannot escape from. I fucking loved it.”
