“Filled with the frenetic, automatic energy of sex, Williams’ elaborate webs seem like vast abstract tissues of unconscious material being woven in someone’s head. To make private traumas public can sometimes seem to be a strangely depriving experience for what remains of a sense of self. Williams says that when she’s alone with herself she sometimes gives herself ‘the willies,’ but by transforming these neuroses into high-spirited aesthetic practice she has found a way of giving them to us instead.” Leslie Camhi Parkett No. 50/51, 1997
