London Ladies, you definitely shouldn’t miss the first UK solo show: Uni~Verse by Anouska Beckwith. Beckwith has not only been one of the Aquazzura Muses in the brands recent campaign but is a very talented photographer and multimedia artist plus the founder of World Wide Woman, a female artists collective.
Playing with her beautiful motifs around shamanic practice, Greek mythology and medieval England, its all about investigating the feminine role throughout history:
“Until two thousand years ago we lived in Matriarchal societies where women were seen as the givers of life and instilled as the keepers of peace, healers and, in many different countries, the priestesses of worship. Then, women and men saw animals as messengers communicating insights from the spiritual world that nowadays we would not acknowledge.
My work incorporates references that have been forgotten in history, as I believe that in order for us to restore the natural balance of our planet we need to be awakened to what has been lost as we and our societies have evolved.” said Beckwith.
In photographs which observe nature at its finest, set within an immersive organic installation, Beckwith sets out to encourage gratitude and guardianship of the Earth. The model for the work The Empress (2016) is Beckwith soulmates and muse, British folk singer Flo Morrissey, who will perform an acoustic set during the opening event on 16 September.
 
Duration:
17 September – 8 October 2016
Private View 16 September 6 – 9pm
Palm Tree Gallery, 291 Portobello Rd, London
