Beverley Bennett is an artist-filmmaker who lives and works in London.
Bennett’s practice revolves around the act of drawing and the perpetual possibilities it possesses. Her artworks have been described as having an almost audible quality which inspired Bennet to explore how her drawings can influence and transform into other mediums such as sound.
The 2019 London Art Fair saw the works of Beverly Bennett and Jade Montserrat being exhibited within Inivas’ stand, located within the Arts Project section. With a focus on works on paper, the stand explores drawing and performance through intimate and radical gestures. This was followed by a public talk: ‘The radical gesture: articulating invisible histories through mark making.’
Bennett’s work has been shown nationally and internationally; venues include Metal, Liverpool (2018), Encounters Short Film Festival, Bristol (2017), The National Gallery of Jamaica, Kingston (2016), New Art Exchange, Nottingham (2016), Arena Gallery, Liverpool, (2010), ‘Residue’, Unit Gallery, Hong Kong, (2011).
Bennett is also the founding member and Co-Director of London-based art collective TBC, who self-publish a magazine, 12 Pages, and work on exhibition projects that interrogate individual members’ creative identities and explore the potential of collaborative works.
She obtained a BA degree in Visual Communication from the University of Central England (2004) and an MA in Fine Arts from the Middlesex University in London (2009). She also studied Experimental Sound Art at the Mary Ward Centre, London in 2014.
