Join artist Beatrix Haxby for a special preview of her upcoming solo exhibition ‘WHAT I’M DOING WITH MY BODY’.

Taking place on the 20th of Ocober, meet Beatrix in Patrick Studios at East Street Arts for an intimate collection of paintings, drawings, sculpture and live performance. Her work is accompanied by poetry from collaborator Mary Von Butchell. 

WHAT I AM DOING WITH MY BODY’ demonstrates a restlessly inventive character and rigorous process of self reflection.  A not so immaculate conception, the lovechild of Dalí and Emin. The exhibition is an intimate conversation between a selection of drawings and paintings transcribing the human imperatives of want and need, desire and love. 

Her pieces are like cosmic vaults, overstimulated and thoroughly composed, infused with a bizarre depth of intimacy. Acutely aware of her times, Haxby’s practice seeks to trouble and transform conceived notions of gender, the muse, and aesthetics. She is eager to revise the cultural script of the ‘tortured artiste’ crying into their cigarette. Behold - strength, power, precision. Beatrix sculpts her physical form through intensive calisthenics, a process she describes as ‘body architecture’. A sculpture disguised as a human being, her hair is a storm of crows and her waist is belt of Adonis.
Discover an artist willing to travel inwards.

The private view is on the 20th of October, and the show will run until the 25th.
