Liam Benson is a performance artist who documents and exhibits his work through photography and video. Benson’s work deconstructs the social perceptions of gender, race, cultural and sub-cultural identity by cross-referencing a juxtaposition of popular culture, art and media language. Benson’s work serves to celebrate the evolution of social archetypes by exploring cultural and sub-cultural amalgamation.
Liam Benson has been exhibiting since 2002. Benson also works in collaboration with Naomi Oliver as the performance based duo, The Motel Sisters. His works are held in significant public and private collections and he was recently awarded The Champions of the West Arts Grant 2014, The Josaphine Ulrich and Win Schubert Photography award 2013, The Hawkesbury Art Award 2012, the Hazelhurst Art on Paper Award 2011, and the Contemporary Award category of the Fishers Ghost Art Award 2011.
