Speaker biography
Anne Bean is an internationally known installation and performance artist. Born in Zambia and resident in the UK, her evocative work encompasses a range of media including slide projections, drawing, photography, video and sound using a wide range of materials from fire and pyrotechnics to weather balloons and wind to steam and honey. Since 1970, Anne has presented solo and collaborative projects incorporating static and time-based visual art, sound and performance extensively at art venues, festivals and unique sites throughout Europe, USA, Africa, Mexico and Japan.

A founder member of the legendary Bow Gamelan Ensemble which she formed in 1983 with Paul Burwell and Richard Wilson, she was twice awarded the Time Out Award for performance art.

“A joyful reminder of the sheerly exhilarating experience of dwelling in our curious, physical bodies in the puzzling and contradictory realities which constitute our world.”
Art Week, Los Angeles
