About Winnie Mo Rielly
Winnie Mo Rielly (London 1993), lives and works in Paris, currently at Poush Manifesto. Her work navigates between sculpture, photography, drawing and perfor- mance. She is attracted to the complexity of inhabited spaces, where she observes how bodies interact in tight surroundings. The intimacy that she suggests in her installations is born from revealing proximity that turns towards exchange and encounters.

Her exhibition Leaving room, composed of an installation accompanied by a sound piece will be the object of an artist book to be published in May 2021.
