Artist Blog

Every week an artist whose single image was published by Der Greif is given a platform in which to blog about contemporary photography.

Bethan Hughes

Apr 17, 2017 - Louis de Belle

Bethan Hughes is an artist and researcher based in Leeds and Berlin. We met at the Bauhaus University in Weimar and she is currently a practice-based PhD candidate at the University of Leeds. Her latest works are enquiring into the contradictory ways in which 3D visualisation software has opened up new (virtual) spaces for artistic production.

The images here, a series of close-ups from renderings of latex and scaffolding (part of the Softbodies Series, 2017), use cloth simulation to explore notions of techno-tactility, digital (dis)embodiment and organic precarity.

Beth and I recently had the chance to work together on a series of tableau that will be published in the upcoming issue of San Rocco.
