Sue de Beer


Photographer, video and installation artist Sue de Beer creates work that references experiences related to high school and adolescents. de Beer’s work centers on haunting narratives that resonate with the tragic emotional state of a post-Columbine youth, often focusing on the engagement of first time activities such as sexual experience and drug use. The artist is a graduate of both Parsons School of Design (1995), and Columbia University (1998). In January 2004, the artist appeared in a four page spread in Artforum, and later that year she was featured in the Whitney Biennial. Recent solo exhibitions include Sandroni Rey Gallery, L.A. and Kunst Werke, Berlin. The artist’s video work has been selected for screenings with the MOMA Gramercy Theatre, NYC, and The American Academy in Berlin.
