Bethany Murray is an artist and photographer whose practice is the body and performance. She comes from the tradition of women artists using their body in performance art. Her pieces are often staged photographs which can be seen as film stills. She uses both herself and other women in her performances. Trained in Performance and Dance at Dartington College of Arts in Devon, UK
her work began as a performer in film, dance and live art. Later she trained in photography, going on to study at Central St Martins where she developed her own photographic language. Her work is cinematic and uses a process which is closer to the choreographic. Using juxtaposition through editing she creates fluid, changing narratives in which there is a return to the felt experience, to the body, and to a collective story.
