Katriona Beales uses digital media, video, performance, sculpture and installation to interrogate the aesthetics of excess, in response to what Berardi terms “the constant mental electrocution of the Infosphere”. Beales has exhibited internationally in Ireland, Israel and Austria. She is undertaking a residency in Tokyo in March 2012 and was recently a recipient of the CCW Moving Image Initiative Fund. The resultant film will be screened at South London Gallery in May 2012.

Katriona Beales is currently completing her MA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and Design, with thanks to a Stanley Picker Scholarship.


“I was moved by the journey along the Thames on the historical wooden barge on the first day. I had never viewed London from the water and it gave a totally different perspective on the city. It seemed still, quiet, silenced even, shut in on itself, turned away from the river that brought it into existence… There were very few people in a place I am used to finding claustrophobic with crowds. It was like sliding into a different place altogether.”
