Artist of the Day - Beatrice Brown - Monday 23rd June

We are pleased to announce the 21st edition of Artist of the Day. This two week exhibition showcases the work of ten emerging artists chosen not by the gallery, but by established professional practitioners who have each nominated a talent of their choice.

Our first 2014 Artist of the Day is Beatrice Brown, a performance artist selected by Tim Shaw RA.

On Monday 23rd June, our Cork Street gallery will be radically transformed in order to immerse the audience in the artist's ritual experience, which involves two performers in a tin bath and several large-scale video projections. Colourful pigments and water constantly falling will plant the atmosphere of this artwork, which aims to explore the themes of baptism, torture, hypnosis, and the hooking of souls from one world to the next.

Beatrice Brown is a complete artist whose practice covers the fields of painting, drawing, performance and music. She has shown her work at the ICA, the Roundhouse, 1 Exhibition Road, Pure Evil Gallery , The Cornwall Biennale and Millenium St Ives. 

"I walked into the world of Beatrice Brown one summer evening last year and never forgot the experience. A caravan parked on top of the Halzephron cliffs on the Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall. Inside a young woman in a nightdress lay across a bed; into a microphone she recited Dante's Inferno and sang words close to the heart. The scent filled candle lit interior was an explosion of gypsy memorabilia. The experience transformed reality into something unsettling and visceral." Tim Shaw RA
