Boo Saville

explores the symbolic and ritualistic images of human remains and archeological remnants. She studied at the Slade School of Art, London. From 2003 she formed part of the WOWOW! collective in South London with the artist Matthew Stone. In 2007 she was a nominee for the Sovereign Painting Prize, and in the summer of 2008 she worked on a residency in Paris at the Cite des Arts. Her first solo show was at Martin Summers Fine Art in 2008. Saville is currently represented by TJ Boulting (formerly Trolley Gallery) where she held her third solo show in 2012. Her work looks at the symbolism of the human body through the source material of scientific or archaeological textbooks. Purely documentary and non-subjective in their approach, these images catalogue an archive of curled and gnarled human phenomena, spiritual and totemic objects and also often the victims of bizarre and intriguing sacrificial murders.
