Chloe Dewe Mathews – Banger Boys of Britain

Banger racing is practiced by small communities throughout the country. They invest all their time and money in doing up old cars, only to smash them to pieces by the end of the week. They’ve been doing it for generations. Whether as a driver or spectator, the ritual satisfies a common human urge: to create and destroy.

Chloe was born in London. She is a red snapper – most engaged and alive taking photos or swimming in the cold sea. Her work has been published in the Independent and Dazed and Confused magazine. She has exhibited in London, Birmingham, Buenos Aires and Berlin, in solo shows as well as with London art collective !WOWOW!.
