SARAH BEDDINGTON: Parallel Lines and Other Stories*


13.-17 JULI 2005


Sarah Beddington is a British artist who works with painting, video and 
installation. While much of her video work depicts non-domestic, 
publicly accessible spaces, she does not attempt to exoticize or 
glamorize them. Rather, she records unique social and aesthetic 
circumstances, which manifest themselves in a highly accidental and 
contingent manner. Under her unwavering gaze, everyday occurrences are 
transformed into a cunning theatre of the 'non-happening.' None of the 
work has been staged, and typically takes shape as a single continuous 
shot that runs for approximately five minutes or less.

Beddington received her Masters of Fine Art from the Central St Martin's 
College of Art and Design in 1996. Her work has been shown at the 
Whitechapel Gallery in London, ArtBasel Miami, Momenta Art in Brooklyn, 
and White Box and Artist's Space in New York. An installation and series 
of paintings can be seen in the exhibition "Vanishing Point" curated by 
Claudine Isé at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus. Beddington 
lives and works in London and New York.

Shot at the National Museum of Cinema in Turin, Italy, a scene from a 
classic black and white film is interrupted by the movement of museum 
visitors through the ribboned surface of a projection screen. This work 
will be projected above the stage in the main space of Raum 3.

Blowtorch Sleepers, 3:14 min

The 'Shanghai Series' represents the artist's observations while in 
residency in Shanghai last year. Filmed exclusively during the Full Moon 
festival and the week-long holiday commemorating the Cultural 
Revolution, each of these shorts capture transient moments in the city.

A stationary shop window on a metropolis sidewalk reveals different
