Our Standpoint Futures resident Beth Emily Richards has moved into Studio4 for six weeks of mentoring and making.
Beth is an artist and researcher based in Plymouth. Her work investigates contemporary mythmaking, often exploring popular culture and its associated idiosyncratic subcultures. Frequently the work seeks to complicate macho narratives by re-performing them in ways that use absurdism and failure to undermine dominant histories.
Past works have engaged with personae such as Harry Houdini, Robert Falcon Scott, Francis Drake, Arnold Schwarzenegger and William ‘Buffalo Bill’ Cody; as well as with social trends such as ‘tombstoning’ (teenagers jumping off cliffs into the sea), Mexican telenovelas, ‘80s-‘90s action films, roller derby girls, Western movies, scouting, and motivational speaking.
Working with others is central to Beth’s practice, which frequently involves collaborating with location-based or interest-based communities. During her time at Standpoint Futures she will be consolidating and expanding upon a group of occult enthusiasts and experts with whom she has been attending workshops responding to the life and work of Ithell Colquhoun, a surrealist artist, writer and occultist who worked in Cornwall in the mid-twentieth century.
Beth’s new body of work not only responds to Colquhoun’s creative output and divinatory practices, but to the experience of working with a diverse group of artists, writers and magical practitioners, and forming a temporary community with them.

Standpoint Futures visual art development residencies are for emerging/mid-career artists, based outside Greater London. They are designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants.
The residency’s chief aims are to provide high quality, individualised opportunities to develop the artist’s practice and career, and to promote the exchange of ideas between London and the wider UK art world.
Standpoint Futures is run in partnership and hosted with Chisenhale Studios with support from Arts Council England, Arts Council Wales and the Fenton Arts Trust. http://www.standpointlondon.co.uk/residencies
Chisenhale Studios is pleased to announce the 14 artists selected for Into the Wild 2018:
Ayo Akingbade (LCC), Marc Blazel (Brighton), Jamie Bradley (Chelsea), Noa Carvajal (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama), Jodie Chinn (Goldsmiths), Verity Coward (Goldsmiths), Annabel Duggleby (Wimbledon), George Hill-Baker (Wimbledon), Megan Jenkins (Glasgow), Yoojin Lee (Gerrit Rietveld Academie), Lawrence Pardoe (Slade), Adam Paroussos (Central St Martins), Elinor Stanley (Glasgow), Ted Targett (Wimbledon).
The group were selected by a panel of judges including artists Richard Layzell, Sarah Kate Wilson and Louise Ashcroft (ITW Programme Leader), and our Arts Manager Andrea Davidson.
The programme kicks off in early December with a 2-day intensive during which participants will get to know one another’s practices and collectively influence the design of the 10-week taught course which commences in January.
Later in the year the group will carry out individual research projects in association with external organisations, host events and an exhibition, and take part in a mentoring programme led by emerging curators Nora-Swantje Almes and Andrew Price who are currently on the Goldsmiths MFA in Curating.
Now in its fourth year, this ambitious programme develops artists’ practices and careers during the challenging period after undergraduate study.
The programme is funded by Arts Council England and Chisenhale Art Place.
