Amelia Beavis-Harrison

Artist, Curator, Writer

Amelia Beavis-Harrison is an artist and curator currently based between the UK and Norway. Amelia’s practice is rooted within performance which is used as a way of interpreting situations and re-defining histories. Part of her practice explores the role of costume within performance questioning its role as an additional part and considering it as a central component that can begin a visual dialogue and generate a performance in its wearing. Often Amelia’s practice brings together two or more contexts and merges them to create a new narrative using symbolism from the pre-existing context. Amelia uses a research based way of working to understand and generate the context to her work. Alongside her performance’s Amelia produces prints as a way of capturing the momentary gestures. Amelia also works as an independent curator and co-directs Lincoln Art Programme. read full statement
