The veil has been lifted

You can no longer claim ignorance

Or deceit

All has been revealed

Be grateful

You were spared being turned into the very

salt that has fueled your angst

You will not the sinner of some religion’s

cautionary tale

Stories told around the fire to teach people

what happens when you:

Go against god

Go against your husband

Go against the societal norm and

expectation to put your future and fate in the

hands of someone who honestly isnt all that

accredited to have that responsibility

When you regret

When you doubt.

No you will not be the villain in another’s

story

You will have stood your ground

You will be confident in all your choices and

actions

Especially the one to walk away

Without turning back

Beatrice Loft Schulz is an artist from London living in Glasgow. Her work uses digital and manual crafts, as well as performance, to articulate relationships between pleasure, labour, and gender. The process of making a work may be triggered by a coincidence, a conversation, or a rock. Most of her recent work has been intentionally private and therapeutic. She sometimes works with other people. The Sticks, with Laura Morrison, was part of Glasgow International in 2018. She performed with queer musical ensemble Beep as part of the Staying Out Tour (2018), exploring the legacy of section 28. Domestic Melodrama was a film performance, made together with Alice Brooke, and performed at Tramway, as part of the Glasgow Artists Moving Image Festival 2016. To Ailsa Rock was a collaboration with Lindsay McMillan shown at Kunstraum, London in June 2019.

Her research makes use of feminist studies, psychoanalysis and political economy, as expressed by the philosopher Bernard Stiegler’s specific use of proletarianisation. She has previously studied at Birkbeck and Goldsmith Colleges between 2009 and 2015. In the exhibitions and events she curated over the years, she has worked with artists like Liliana Basarab (RO), Ziad Antar (LB) and Heath Bunting (UK). In 2008 she has started publishing art criticism texts for Revista ARTA (Bucharest), thisistomorrow (London), IDEA arts+society (Cluj), as well as a series of catalogue essays. Her future projects during 2020 include an extensive group show at Studio3 Gallery, Canterbury centered around algorithms and poetry, and guest writer in residence at Murree Artist Residency, outside Lahore.
