Honey Biba Beckerlee

Honey Biba Beckerlee’s practice revolves around the belief that images co-produce our view of the world and the way we relate to each other. Through installation art she aims to push the visual medium to the point where it challenges our perception of reality. Her work revolves around how images may challenge the idea of a coherent objective reality and other singular paradigms, such as the principle of originality, individualism and anthropocentrism.

Honey Biba Beckerlee (born 1978) obtained an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and an MA in Contemporary Art Theory from Goldsmiths, University of London. Her work is research-based and theoretically informed, with a keen interest in Quantum Theory, animism and materialism.
