Liam Benson: Hello, good to meet you
Sat 14 May - Sun 24 JulyFREE
Liam Benson is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice incorporates performance, photography, video and textiles. His work is informed by working collaboratively with diverse communities through an ongoing conversation about how culture, sub-culture and identity interrelate and evolve.
Hello, good to meet you is an interactive installation commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) for the Jackson Bella Room – a dedicated space within the MCA where diverse audiences can engage with contemporary art through sensory experience.
Informed by the complex and multisensorial ways that horses interact, feel and connect, Benson’s installation offers a space where audiences can experiment together with non-verbal communication, dance and sensorial play.
The presentation of Hello, Good to meet you at Orange Regional Gallery extends on Benson’s initial collaboration with Riding for the Disabled Association NSW’s Tall Timbers centre in the development of the work through a new collaboration with the Orange branch of the Association for its first regional showing.
