A new installation that explores the fact and fiction surrounding pop legend Michael Jackson’s bizarre appearance at Exeter City’s football ground St James’ Park in 2002.


Beth Emily Richards is an artist based in Plymouth, UK. She explores notions of the performer, macho and the absurd through her performative practice. Her work addresses the veracity of the archive, particularly the role of lens-based media and documentation in live artworks. Richards utilises photographs, text, events and actions, performances to camera, sound works and props to subvert personal, sited and fictive histories. Strategies of ‘failure’ and changes of scale are often employed to disrupt expectations and hegemonies in a playful way.  She employs reenactment to interrogate concepts of authenticity, and to play with the malleability of meaning created by images, artworks and narratives.
