Between Bridges Residency
July–December 2024: Lucy Beech
Lucy Beech is an artist whose practice revolves around collaboration and encompasses filmmaking, choreography, research and writing. Often blending documentary and fiction, Beech's work explores how entanglements between biological, social and cultural processes shape organisms and environments. A series of new films produced in the last few years have focused on the ecological, psychic and societal impacts of reusing waste materials in contexts such as poetry, agriculture and reproductive medicine. Beech is the founder of the Working With Waste Research Group; a shared nomadic space for artists, historians and environmentalists to develop projects that reactivate waste materials.
