Beatrice Gibson

Beatrice Gibson (b. 1978, U.K.) is an artist based in London. Her films explore the relationship between music making and film making. Investigating the utterances that form people and place and drawing on modernist composition, her scripts deploy the score as a paradigm for their production, examining ideas around fact, fiction, authorship and spectatorship. The resulting films are meticulous formal portraits, of landscapes, and the characters and voices that inhabit them. Recent solo exhibitions include, CAC Bretigny, Index Contemporary Art Centre, Stockholm, The Showroom London, Kunstlerhaus Stuttgart, and The Serpentine Gallery (Sackler Center). Gibson’s films have screened at numerous experimental film venues and at film festivals national and internationally including Light Industry, Anthology Film Archives NY, LA Film Forum, Rotterdam Film Festival, London Film Festival, Images Festival, Migrating Forms, Courtisane, Oberhausen and more. She has been twice winner of the Rotterdam Film Festival Tiger Award for short films. In 2013 she was shortlisted for the Jarman award and nominated for the Max Mara prize for Woman Artists.
