Filmarmalade are proud to present the first major retrospective of the self-seminized conceptual sculptor, film maker and general l’enfant terrible Beth Fox.
“Beth Fox’s work espouses a complex form of reflexive post-modern humour with influences as diverse as Kierkegaard and Woody Allen. Through the medium of sculpture and text, new variations are synthesised from both opaque and transparent meanings and what starts out as contemplation soon becomes manipulated into a hegemony of defeat, leaving only a sense of unreality and the unlikelihood of a new order.” - August DeWitt (writer, intellectual, art critic, feminist, political activist and gender theorist)
Fox recently recently exhibited work at Divus Gallery, London, Sluice, London, Angus-Hughes Gallery, London, the Horse Hospital, London and the Bunkhouse Gallery, Madrid. She was born in Ireland and lives and works in London.
