Biography //Candida Powell-Williams has an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art (2011) and a BA in Fine Art from the Slade School of Fine Art London (2009). Her sculptures and performances explore the instability of memory and storytelling. Her work is informed by an exploration of visual patterns and human ways of ordering the chaotic universe, examining the connection between objects, action and belief through a female lens.
