Beth Greenhalgh – BLOODY POETRY



 
BLOODY POETRY
Beth Greenhalgh

The scene is taking place within a shop, within a shopping centre. The scene will

involve body, sound, sculpture, text and voice. Behind the scene a relationship

with  a seagull is formed.

The scene:

So I open my mouth and you look inside. It is enlarged now and easy to follow

the arrowed path down to the heart. You reach it’s beat.

The Vena cava is stretched at length. It has darkened.

The aorta, a distant throb, a distilled ripple.

The landscape is forming, between the mouth and the heart. It grows at its own

pace and is measured in colour. The mouth makes noise. This noise, a fuzz of

sound causes light to freeze around objects. We become poetry. We become beat.

We become beat poets.

Born in Huddersfield, Beth Greenhalgh studied Time-Based practice at Cardiff

school of Art and Design. Recent works include ‘Little Tokyo’ The Tate london,

‘Little Green’ National Eisteddfodd, Wales and ‘The yellow Wallpaper’ The ATTIC,

Cardiff. Her work uitilizes highly aesthetic scenes to evoke uncanny ritual and

images alluding to a mystical reality based on a distorted “popular culture”.
