Louise Beer is an artist and curator working in Minster, UK. Louise’s practice uses installation, moving image, photography and sound to examine humanity’s evolving understanding of Earth’s environments and the cosmos, creating objects and experiences that reflect the incomprehensible nature of reality, from the ocean floor to the night sky.
At Amant Siena, Louise Beer will further her research into the philosophical and biological importance of natural darkness. Louise will explore the Crete Senesi landscape using photography and sound recording, focusing on the geological history of the area.
