As an observer of the contemporary world, the work of English artist Issy Wood is the result of an amused, affected and sometimes disconcerted view of the power relationships at play.

Exhibition Catalogue Issy Wood - Study for No, presented at Lafayette Anticipations, Paris (18 October 2023 - 17 January 2024).
Borrowing its title from a 2019 painting, the exhibition unfolds around the notion of refusal and resistance, explored through the artist's obsession with intimacy, interiority, care, desire, femininity, relationships, and identity.
The body of work presented in the catalogue speaks of a refusal to accept a certain order, and expresses unease at the systems of oppression, both conscious and unconscious, that govern human beings, especially the most vulnerable.
The exhibition catalogue includes an essay by art critic Barry Schwabsky, a portrait of the artist by Kaitlin Phillips, and an interview between Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel and Issy Wood.
