Days of Life


Becky Beasley’s bookwork Days Of Life was first shown at her solo show Sleep is when you grow at Skuc Gallery, Ljublana in the summer of 2015.

​Her earlier large-scale photograph Fig Tree (2001, Amwell Street) 2014, is ​beautifully reproduced here, fragmented ​across nine individual pages ​​and ​combined with a prose ​poem by the artist​​. The work is a​ ​reflection on the limits of language and cliche in the context of the artist’s pregnancy and birth of her first child.

​Each single book edition comes in a, embossed folio handmade by Unit33 Bookbinders in Hastings.
