Liam Benson: Mapping the Immeasurable

July 15 - August 8

Liam Benson, Above and Below, 2020. Digital print on solve glaze cotton rag, 120 x 170cm. Courtesy: the artist and Artereal Gallery.

His first solo exhibition since his major Bella Room commission at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia in 2019, Mapping the Immeasurable reflects on dilemmas, personal and universal, of Liam Benson’s own and of Australia’s fraught dual histories.

Rethinking our past in order to better understand the present and develop a new awareness of self is a process familiar to Benson. Having found a way to reconcile the opposing forces within his own personal narrative as a queer artist who had a conservative suburban upbringing, Benson continues to unpack what it means to be a white Australian living within a Colonial legacy on stolen land. Challenging our engrained practice of seeing the world through a Colonial lens, Benson’s latest series of photographs and embroideries ask us to consider how Australia’s brutal past is still informing who we are today.

The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.

The exhibition can also be viewing online. View exhibition here.
