Jacqueline Bebb 'She Showed a bit of Skirt, but Settled for a Kit-Kat'
13.04.13 – 18.05.13

In the Bakery, Annet Gelink Gallery proudly presents the first show by Jacqueline Bebb (Chester, 1977): She Showed a bit of Skirt, but Settled for a Kit-Kat. At Annet Gelink Gallery, Bebb shows three works, each representing specific moments in time and describes them as ‘semi-autobiographical and intentionally awkward’. They consider both fondness and regret and come from an ongoing series of work exploring the theme of dissonance.

In both “Almost, Sweet Talk, Caffeine (My Dissonance)” and “Skulk”, Bebb reflects on her youth and considers her occasional less than perfect behaviour. In “How Much I Fancied Her 1995 – 2001”, she looks back at an ongoing quarrel she had with her best mate, simply referred to as BM. The argument concerned the level of affection one of them thought the other showed towards a girl. At the time, a pie chart was drawn to illustrate the argument, but on reflection neither could remember the specifics of it, only their shared endeavour. The work is comprised of a wooden pie chart made to the specifications of the original drawing. Each segment of the pie represents a year between 1995-2001, with the varying angles denoting the level of affection held for the girl. One pie chart has been gifted to various pubs that the artist and BM used to drink in together in Chester. A second pie chart is exhibited as a sculpture in the current exhibition and the third was gifted to BM as a testimony to their friendship. It was given with the dedication: BM, I did wrong you once and I am sorry.

Bebb participated in the group show Chester at CO2 in Rome (2012) and she has had a solo show Carrying Off in Aldeburgh (2013).
