CLARK BEAUMONT is the Brisbane-based artistic collaboration of Nicole Beaumont and Sarah Clark. Through both live and mediated performance works they investigate ideas and constructs surrounding identity, female subjectivity, intimacy and interpersonal relationships. Clark Beaumont are the subjects of their work, and their collaboration involves examining the social and physical dynamics of working together to create artwork. Through performance and time-based media, the pair experiment with multiple feminine personas and characters to recreate and reflect on their individual and intersubjective experiences. Their works often explore the intersection between performativity and authenticity, as well as the shifting dynamic between performer and viewer. The duo creatively and critically engage elements of humour and absurdity to explore how contemporary constructs of female identity and subjectivity are formed.
