#SheInspiresMe Auction 2018

Own a one-of-a-kind piece that perfectly represents the work of Women for Women International. Empower is a unique and timeless piece, a word drawing, created by renowned artist Barnaby Barford.

The Artist

Barnaby Barford

Barnaby Barford uses familiar iconography to subvert the telling of ancient cautionary tales within a contemporary context.

Barford is best known for The Tower of Babel (2015), a monumental 6.5m tall tower, created for the V&A in London. The installation comprised 3000 bone china buildings, each depicting an actual unique London shop that was offered for sale.

Prices of the shops rose in relation to their position on the tower, prompting people to confront where they fitted into London’s hierarchy of consumption. 

Barnaby Barford’s work has been exhibited internationally with solo shows across Europe and the US. Represented by David Gill Gallery in London, his work is part of public and private collections worldwide such as The V&A Museum in London and MoFA in Houston, Texas.

Kindly donated by Barnaby Barford.
