Reproductive Exile, Lucy Beech


Born in 1990, Ingrid Luquet-Gad is an art critic.
After studying philosophy and art history at the Freie Universität in Berlin and the Sorbonne in Paris, she is currently in charge of the art section of the magazine Les Inrockuptibles and regularly contributes to the magazines Artforum, Cura, Flash Art and Spike. Through essays, catalogue texts and lectures, her theoretical writings explore the complexity, ambiguities and contradictions of individual and collective subjectivities: their representations, their media, their languages and their affects, as expressed by these artists dancing on the crest of the present times.
Lucy Beech makes films that are often situated between documentary and fiction, and engage with communities of marginalized women.
The artist has explored how contexts such as biomedicine, death, wellness, diagnosis and illness involve the construction of narrative, focusing on power and the production of visibility in relation to the female body as well as structures of care, wellbeing and the economies deployed around these themes.

Alongside her solo practice Lucy Beech has worked with Edward Thomasson (since 2007), with whom she develops choreographies that involve the live construction of sound. She has presented exhibitions and performances at: Tate Britain, Londres (2017); the Liverpool Biennale (2016); Maureen Paley, Londres (2016); Site Gallery, Sheffield (2016); Lisson Gallery Londres, Frieze Live, Londres; James Fuentes, New York; Tetley Leeds; The Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston (2015).
