Hard Breath

Bea Haines (b. 1986, London) graduated with an MA in Printmaking from the Royal College of Art before becoming print fellow at the Royal Academy of Arts until 2016. Bea has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally, completing residencies at Griffin Gallery, Marlborough College and the University of Abertay’s forensics lab. In 2015 she was listed in Artlyst’s ‘top 10 artists under 30’.


Bea says:

"Social etiquette has changed a great deal since Covid hit. If someone sneezes or coughs next to you in a queue it is seen as antisocial. Made by breathing molten wax into cool water, this little sculpture explores current views on breath as a threatening biohazard."
