Permeated by the vocabulary of consumer culture, Gabriele Beveridge (b. 1985, Hong Kong) creates an enigmatic visual language. For her second solo exhibition at Deweer Gallery, 'Skin for Either One', she works with familiar and new methods. In analogy with her first show at the gallery, Beveridge again displays an unorthodox hybrid between sculpture, photography and installation. The artist drapes hand-blown glass over found, cosmetic store panels and brackets in shiny chrome used in shops to hang clothes on. For the first time however, she also applies these transparent glass objects to chemigrams (read: photographic paper painted on with chemicals from the beauty industry). The result is ambiguous: fragile and distant, familiar and strange. And above all: poetic, mysterious and seductive.
Gabriele Beveridge (b.1985 in Hong Kong) is a London-based artist. She graduated with an MA in Fine Art from the Slade School of Fine Art, London in 2010 and a BA in photography from Falmouth College of Arts in 2007.
