MURMUR

MURMUR

PHILIPPA BEVERIDGE (GB)

Study exhibition: 26.01-31.03. 2019

British artist, Philippa Beveridge works with architectural commissions, installations and sculpture in glass combined with other materials. The link between the work and the physical surroundings have always been of great importance to her. Her studio space resembles a cabinet of curiosities where glass elements from shells to feathers, purses to wings, sit side by side with found objects, her own photographs, postcards, notes and memos.

In the Study project at Glasmuseet Ebeltoft Philippa Beveridge will convert the space into a personal cabinet of curiosities, where elements emblematic of her working processes will be shown together with a new feather-based wall installation of a more experimental nature entitled Murmur. The word murmur means to mumble. But it also refers to the sound of a subtle whistle or humming, and the word Murmuration refers to the phenomenon of hundreds, sometimes thousands, of starlings that fly in intricately coordinated patterns through the sky. Based on this phenomenon, Philippa Beveridge continues to work on an on-going project, which involves small glass feathers, which will evolve and develop into larger formations and figures during the exhibition period.

Philippa Beveridge primarily works with kiln formed, surface decorated glass combined with other techniques and materials. Since 2011 she has been working with the feather as a continuous element in her work, which address subjects such as collective and individual identity, memory, traces and time.

Philippa Beveridge was born in London in 1962. She has just returned to the UK, after living and working in Spain for 20 years. She has an MFA in Art and Architecture from the University of East London, and she studied sculpture, painting, mosaic and glass at the Massana Art School in Barcelona. Philippa Beveridge has received several awards for her work and she has taught in several countries including USA, France and Spain. Her work is represented in collections at the Europäisches Museum für Modernes Glas in Coburg, Germany, Musée-Atelier du Verre, Sars Poteries, France, and Museo de Arte en Vidrio de Alcorcón (MAVA) in Madrid, Spain. This is the first time her work will be presented at Glasmuseet Ebeltoft.
