    I think there is a really productive middle territory to be inhabited between attention to both democratic social process and aesthetic form.

    Beatrice Gibson (b.1978) is an artist and filmmaker based in London. Her films explore the utterances the make up people and place. Influenced by avant-garde musical composition, graphic notation and open scores, Gibson's scripts are often developed collectively with her subjects through open ended structures. The resulting films, meticulous and formal portraits of landscapes and the voices that inhabit them, work to complicate the notion of the document. A NECESSARY MUSIC made in collaboration with Alex Waterman, won the Tiger Award for best short at the Rotterdam Film Festival in 2009. Recent solo exhibitions include: Beatrice Gibson, The Tiger’s Mind, Kunstlerhaus Stuttgart, 2011, The Future’s Getting Old Like The Rest Of Us, Serpentine Gallery, 2010. She has shown at numerous festivals including The Rotterdam International Film Festival, Images Toronto, Courtisane Festival Ghent, Migrating Forms New York, The Chicago Underground Film festival, Hors Piste at the Pompidou, Paris and CPH DOX, Copenhagen. Her latest film TWO SISTERS WHO ARE NOT SISTERS premiered at Quinzaine des Réalisateurs in 2019.
