Bethany Freer

Through spatial investigations, Bethany Freer utilises her practise as enquiry into the surrounding fixed space, questioning and disrupting its contained social behaviours and hierarchy it evidentially produces and dictates. Using her sculptures as interruptions and obstructions, spaces are stripped of their mass-produced purpose and distorted, challenging how we decode spatial information as the audience individually decides what the space can afford to be. Sculptures make visible the social relationships and behaviours of spaces through her engineering and meddling of our very own phenomenology and spatial experiences. Playful and liberating, her work wishes to hand back power to the inhabitant through forcing us to change and re-imagine our surroundings and navigational habits.
