    Lindsay Benedict

    Profile

    Lindsay Benedict presents us with fragments and gestures that examine and question social relations. In her work, affect and raw emotion are often deployed to disrupt and destabilize any simple reading of human attachments. Self-enquiry and self-presentation is central to her practice, throwing light on the cultural coding and constructedness of our identities. By using her body to work through issues of race, culture, religion and gender, Benedict sets out a unique set of DIY parameters to explore. Her work has been shown in the United States, Switzerland, France, Italy, Canada, Germany, and Croatia at such venues as Berkeley Art Museum, Pacific Film Archive, Danspace, Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers, Le Confort Moderne, FRAC Piemonte, Centrale Fies, Antonio Ratti Foundation, The Knockdown Center, Dixon Place, Movement Research Spring Festival, Lovely DAYS Film Festival, PARMER, PS 122, Le Cyclop de Jean Tinguely, Sonnenstube, Chocolate Factory, Languedoc-Roussillon Cinéma, Emergency Biennial, Detroit Museum of New Art (MONA), New Langton Arts, and she has permanent artworks in the library collections at the European School of Visual Arts, Angoulême and the University of California, Berkeley. Benedict received a BA from Williams College, an MFA from the University of California, Berkeley and was a studio fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program.
