Beverley Bennett collaborates with a number of Nottingham based artists across different art forms to explore how her drawings can be a catalyst for the creative process, beyond visual arts.

About

Beverley Bennett makes monochrome, abstract drawings where layers of pigment and repetitive mark making add a sense of power and energy to the surface of the paper. Her artworks have been described as having an almost audible quality which inspired Bennet to explore how her drawings can influence and transform into other mediums such as sound.

Here in Dissonance, Bennett has taken this idea a step further by collaborating with a number of Nottingham based artists across different art forms to explore how her drawings can be a catalyst for the creative process, beyond visual arts. Each artist/collaborator has been given the task of reconfiguring Bennett's drawings into a graphic score and/or interpreting the drawings into their medium of choice including dance, poetry and sculpture.

In addition, the audience is also invited to become part of the creative collaborative process by taking part in a spoken-word project that will be performed during the launch of the show, and in the gallery space itself, through interacting via dance and movement with a 3D sculptural piece in a form of a dance floor.

The artists collaborating with Beverley Bennett are: Antonio Abatangelo, Chiara Dellerba, Rob Flint, Jess Murray, David Stickman Higgins, Honey Williams.
