George Beacher, b. 1930, Achnasheen, Scottish Highlands, and Patricia Beacher, née Dixon-Foster, b. 1930, Shrewsbury, England; active as artists on the South Coast of England, 1968– ?1975. After meeting at Nottingham University in 1965 (married 1966), the Beachers began to develop their body arrangements as a series of tableaux performed annually at various locations in the South of England. Documented in photographs, these works were bound into a number of albums, each taking its title from the town where the actions took place.
