Rebecca Beinart

Rebecca Beinart will explore the relationship between care and loss through an ambitious piece of live work bringing together a collection of stories about lost trees, developed through research collected around specific forests. The audience will experience a series of one-to-one encounters, which draw upon connections between personal experiences of loss and wider themes such as deforestation and collective memory. Rebecca completed an MA in Arts and Ecology at Dartington School of Art (now part of Falmouth University) in 2008. Her projects, which are often collaborative, explore the crossover between art, ecology and politics, taking the form of live events and interventions in public places. Recent work includes a commission for the National Trust in Staffordshire, with Katy Beinart, entitled Imagined Geographies (2015), and Bureau of Urban Wilds, a commission for UP Projects in London (2013-14)
