Renee Spierdijk at the Alison Richard Building, Cambridge. ‘Renee Spierdijk’s work responds to images of young girls and women, mainly from found photographs. She choose portraits that are taken in formal settings, with the individual often surrounded by political or religious artefacts. Spierdijk is interested in the conditioning and domestication which children seem to be subjected to and in which they can appear patient, content or quietly mutinous as they wait and hope to become themselves.’ Exhibition on until 29th June 2018.
