The films of celebrated British artist Beatrice Gibson draw on the work of experimental writers and musicians. Based on an improvisational score by Cornelius Cardew, The Tiger’s Mind (2012) is an abstract crime thriller. F for Fibonacci (2014) and Crippled Symmetries (2015) are both inspired by William Gaddis’s epic modernist novel JR (1975) and feature the same 11-year old protagonist exploring the worlds of money, music and abstraction.
Beatrice Gibson lives and works in London. Recent solo screenings and exhibitions include Collective Gallery, Edinburgh (2015); Statements, Art Basel, (2015); Beatrice Gibson, Laura Bartlett Gallery, (2014 ). Gibson has twice won the Rotterdam International Film Festival Tiger Award for short film. In 2013 she was shortlisted for the 2013-15 Max Mara Art Prize for Women and in 2015 won the 17th Baloise Art Prize, Art Basel.
Beatrice Gibson will introduce the films and take part in a Q&A after the screening.
