Becky Beasley:

Born 1975, Becky Beasley lives and works in St. Leonards on Sea, East Sussex.

Beasley works in sculpture, installation and photography to express the ambiguities and essential opacity of human experience. Key to her working process is the technique of burrowing: Beasley has a digressive and exploratory practice, focusing on everyday moments of intensity and private revelation. 

Selected exhibitions and performances include The Weather Garden: Anne Hardy curates the Arts Council Collection, Towner Gallery, Eastbourne (2020); Depressive Alcoholic Mother, Plan B Gallery, Berlin (2018); A Gentle Man, 80WSE Gallery, New York (2017); Becky Beasley: Sleep is when you grow, SKUC Public Gallery, Ljubljana (2015); A Slight Nausea: An Interior, Live Work, South London Gallery, London (2014); Spring Rain, Leeds City Gallery, Leeds (2013); Spring Rain, Spike Island, Bristol (2012); 13 Pieces, 17 Feet, Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, London (2010); and The Outside, Tate Britain, London (2012),
