Feet & Hinges (and Other Literary Models) Artist Talks Series organised by Parveen Adams
Date: Friday 27 January 2012
Venue: Lecture Hall
Christy Lange has noted that Beasley’s ‘sculptures and photographs, as mute and minimal as they appear, unexpectedly open onto literary worlds’. Working between sculpture and photography - often printing at a 1:1 scale – allows Beasley to ask sculptural questions of the photographic and to interrogate the sculptural from the position of the photographic object. Conceptual and instinctual attitudes are bound intensely into the centre of her practice.
Becky Beasley lives and works in St Leonards on Sea, UK.
