MARPHILART was the title of Phillippa and Marcella Worthington's exhibition at Southbanks Printmakers Gallery, Unit 12, Gabriel's Wharf, 56 Upper Ground SE1 9PP.

It took place from April 15th to April 28th 2019. We showed screenprints and etchings. 

 

 Solo show "Heads and Tales"  2013 where the double faced heads of David Cameron and Nick Clegg were on view, slowly rotating at the Sprout Gallery, 74 Moyser Road, Furzedown, SW16 6SQ.  The cake heads were cut up on Saturday 15 June. Prints, paintings and a video about previous cake head events were also on display. 

In 2012 Phillippa's show at the Sprout featured the Queen's Cake Head, as well as the heads of Kate and William and David Beckham and was entitled "Twenty-twelve." The Queen's Cake Head was cut up by Alun Armstrong, the actor.

The first time she showed at the Sprout gallery  was in 2011 "The Viewed and the Edible"    The exhibition ran from March 22nd to April 9th. Prints, paintings and three cake heads were on view. The heads were of Saddiq Khan, at that time Tooting MP, Ed Miliband (then the Labour leader) and the Colonel Gaddafi before his demise. Gaddafi's head was raffled and Saddiq sportingly cut his own cake head. 

   "Walk and Talk the Urban Space." was organised by Phillippa and showed her work along with three other Wandsworth artists in 2011 at the Gallery, 77 Cowcross St. London  She also took part in the Surrey Open in June 2011 and in 2012 but not 2013. 

In 2017 the Donald Trump head was shown at the Nasty Women's exhibition in Hackney Wick where he was raffled. The winner then came to Wandsworth Artists Open House weekends, spoke a few word before plunging the knife into the cake head. He was devoured.

Phillippa also showed in the Brick Lane Gallery.

Another head was baked and sculpted, this time of a woman who deserves to be better known. Her name is Charlotte Despard, 1844-1939 a suffragist - the founder of the Women's Freedom League, a socialist who lived in the Battersea Nine Elms area, setting up a working men's club, youth club, clinic and organised soup kitchens in the time of heavy unemployment and was an ardent supporter of Irish independence. She was displayed at Battersea Arts Centre, was shown as part of London Art Night on July 7th and is now in a local community centre.
