Sara Cwynar’s exhibition at The Approach, London is reviewed in the Financial Times by Chris Allnutt.

“These reds are not real,” insists the monotone narrator of “Red Film”, a video installation in Sara Cwynar’s latest show Marilyn. And yet the colour pervades the Brooklyn-based artist’s exploration of glamour and identity in the Instagram era: the reds of a lipstick, of a convertible, of a rose that seems neither entirely real nor entirely imagined.

Her work was due to be exhibited at The Approach, a small gallery in east London, but now features instead in David Zwirner’s online showcase of 12 London gallerists disrupted by coronavirus lockdown. Through photography, film and collage, Cwynar offers up both visual ingenuity and a lively rejoinder to commercialised influencer culture.
