About

Studio shot
Beverly Zimmer, graduated from the Tyler School of Art (Temple University) in 1990.  During her enfollment, she challenged the academic boundaries by working in more of a performance art genre.  Her ambition in exploring the equne form in unconventional context was received enthusiastically. Undergraduate work included a pseudo birthing of a mechanical human from a horse sculpture.  During this exhibit, a human was "born" from the sculpture, emerging on equine prosthesis, and mimicked a horse's movement free standing.  This performance was further enhanced by the presence of a live horse moving in tandem with the birthed human on the prosthetic devices.   The following progression was a suspended mobile rendition of a skeletal equine, that housed a human operator within the sculpture.  While strapped into the thoracic cavity and limbs of the skeletal structure, the operator could simulate a horse's movement and gaits.
