ARTIST TALK
A series of talks with the artists featured in the exhibition, organized by Fondazione MAST, to explore their research and their artistic practice by tracing the roots of their vision.
LUCY BEECH
WASTEWAYS AND THE PERMEABLE BODY

In conversation with Francesco Zanot

Beech’s artist talk focuses on flows of bodily waste in and out of hum/animal bodies in the making of reproductive science. Drawing on animal studies, history of science and fluid mechanics, Beech evokes a poetics of waste in which artistic production is a means to analyze and disrupt fixed ideas about the body and its boundaries.
As part of the event Beech will screen Flush (2023). Blending documentary, reenactment and poetry Flush mediates on early 20th century efforts to use cows to define the human endocrine system. This poetic film blends medical and agricultural jargon that evolved as scientists, eugenicists, zoologists, farmers and sociologists collaborated throughout the 20th century to control hum/animal reproduction and in turn formalise gendered normative values within human society. Flush developed from a collaborative writing project with historian of science Dr. Tamar Novick during Beech’s fellowship at The Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin.

Lucy Beech is an artist whose practice revolves around collaboration and encompasses filmmaking, live performance, choreography, research and writing. Beech’s films operate in a fluid space between documentary and fiction and often use poetry as an approach to scientific research in order to explore the productive potential of uncertainty.
