DETAILS:

I made a series of performance photographs called Avoided Spaces in London and performed the stories in each location using a large format camera. This Polaroid entitled “The White Shirts of an Art Dealer” describes an encounter with a high profile art dealer from New York who was slick and business orientated. One day the artist meets him on a back street in London looking meek with piles of his crumpled dirty white shirts that he wore as a professional. The image of him showed the vulnerability of both the real person and the stories behind the art market and how artists can get overlooked. This image is a performance made in that place. Bethany Murray is an artist who works with cinematic photography and was trained at Dartington College of Arts and Central Saint Martins in the UK. Her work is collected internationally and appears in press and publications focused on identity, the female body and contemporary photography. She is based in the UK and frequently travels to the US to make work.
