Beavis-Harrison, Amelia

Performance, video, installasjon

Amelia Beavis-Harrison (b.1986) works primarily with performance, installation and video. Her practice comes from a deep rooted frustration with the current socio-political climate we find ourselves living within on a day to day basis. Her works alternate between minimal works in public space to theatrically staged environments in galleries and theatres, each with different motivations; may they be the plight of the Roma community or criticisms of governmental policy. The connective elements of text, staging, costume and presence each have equal importance within the work.

Amelia runs the nomadic art platform Kunst Vardo.
