Helen Carmel Benigson is an artist and rapper who lives and works in London. Her working method is interdisciplinary; recent projects take the form of performance, video installations, printmaking, text, sound, music and collaborating. Her current practice has an emphasis on performance within the space of the screen and the negotiation of identity and body within cyberspace. Her aim is to create highly visceral environments, concerned with current biology / technology and sexy images and sounds. These are played out in psychedelic digital carnivals, which repetitively enact the blurred boundaries between performer, producer and spectator, innate to on-line video sharing and real-life performance.
Benigson’s work has been shown both internationally and in England including a solo exhibition in a public space at the University of Creative Arts, Farnham and a solo show at the Irma Stern Museum, Cape Town. Her work was included in the acclaimed exhibition Videonale.14 at the Kunst Museum Bonn, at Flat Time House Space, Peckham, The Ace Gallery, Los Angeles and she has performed at Frieze Art Fair in conjunction with Lucky PDF. Benigson is currently an Associate Artist at LUX.
Currently, Benigson is not represented by a commercial gallery in the UK.
