Multimedia artist Phoebe Boswell talks about her latest show, For Every Real Word Spoken, a tribute to the revolutionary power of female collaboration and one further attempt to overcome silence through artistic gesture. Tiwani Contemporary, London, Courtesy of the artist and Tiwani Contemporary. To the women in your portraits as well as to all the female figures that have influenced you as an artist and thinker. Can you tell us more about the motivations behind these series of works, and how they configure themselves in the wider framework of your recent practice?
Phoebe Boswell: I have spent the past year engaged in works that explore the politics of the female body.
Mutumia focused on the notion of protest, on the female body as a site of resistance and power. At how it has been coerced by the male gaze, and how to subvert this, how to make a portrait of a person and give that person the agency she deserves. CC: The show speaks loudly about the politics of the naked female body, questioning its capacity of being both a bearer of — imposed or otherwise — systems of meanings and a fascinating material object. Yet there is a certain kindness in exposing and re- presenting those challenging political issues in your work.
How would you comment on that? So when it is transmuted into something tangible to be communicated to an audience, it perhaps retains some of that. Recently I have been thinking a lot about power, and its historic proximity to violence. I try to administer this throughout my practice. CC: Your work is often characterised by the use of both traditional and more technologically advanced artistic media. In the case of FEWRS each of the drawings contains a QR Code, which links the images with various material available online, may it be a piece of text, a video, or a song.
How did you come up with this idea?
Asking each of my sitters to think about what it means to project both our theoretical, digital, curated self and our visceral, fleshy, flawed, beautiful, uniquely vulnerable sense was the real impetus of the work, which seeks to reimagine the female nude in art.

CC: Regarding the rich collection of material included in the show, which is accessible through the QR Codes, I am curious about your process of research in this regard.
It is their communication to you; the drawing just becomes a channel for them to speak through. They also have the agency to change this whenever they choose, for the life of the work. What do you need to say? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still, in silence?
