Leigh in London – Robyn Beeche

Community Event

21 Jan 2019 to 22 Mar 2019 Once Only Event

Over her career, Robyn Beeche documented seemingly opposing worlds: the post-punk, new romantic fashion and music scenes of 1980s London, and Hindu ceremonies held in the Indian pilgrimage town of Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh.

The works in this exhibition center on Beeche’s time in London and in particular the photographs she took of Leigh Bowery. Throughout this time she was renowned for collaborating with counter-culture personalities including Zandra Rhodes, Vivienne Westwood, Divine and also Leigh Bowery. She was drawn to personalities who were fascinated with the possibilities of physical transformation. Employing imaginative makeup and sophisticated lighting, bodies were fragmented, distorted and transformed into sculpture.
