Perspectives: Ruth van Beek
This series of free lunchtime artist talks accompanies the exhibition Fieldworks: Animal Habitats in Contemporary Art.
How are animals represented in visual art and how does this affect our understanding of their behaviours, habitats and lives? This series of free lunchtime artist talks accompanies the exhibition Fieldworks: Animal Habitats in Contemporary Art and explores how such depictions influence our perception of animal life and help us gain a better insight into our relationships with different species. Ruth van Beek (b. 1977) uses the established visual codes of photography to guide viewers into a belief in the incredible rarity or importance of the shown object, even when that object is unidentifiable. From a growing archive of found photographic material, she arranges images in constantly changing ways. Van Beek lives and works in Koog aan de Zaan, in the Netherlands.
