Benedict Drew

No Body, 2014


Print specially commissioned to accompany Benedict Drew's exhibition Heads May Roll at Matt’s Gallery, 19 February–20 April 2014.

The work scrutinises the effect and intent of mediated images, synthesised voice and the fractured narrative of instructional speech. This immersive exhibition attempted to make sculptural the absurdity of a life spent staring into a screen and the social anxiety induced by ‘smart’ objects via an alternative sci-fi stage set comprising of a landscape of objects, sound and projection. Its content responds to the super saturated, psychedelic properties of LCD technology and the disorientating potential of electronic sound. Drew critiques contemporary consumption via a fantastical future world in which the image, word and body are exhausted.

Each print is supplied with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
