Benjamin SebastianCo-director & studio artist
Benjamin Sebastian's work is a visual poetics of the erotic and explicit.
They utilise this work as an anarcho-queer-feminist technology to dismantle narratives of heteronormativity, patriarchy and capitalism - by illuminating our spiritual, sexual & animal selves - while centring their non-binary subjecthood.
This is achieved via emotive & esoteric methodologies such as chaos magic, new ritual, eroticism and gender fuckery. Sebastian creates across disciplines, specialising in time-based mediums exploring ideas of becoming, transformation/transition, animalism, memento mori, queerness, longing and desire. Through curating, repetitious tropes, appropriation and acts of duration; their work attempts to interrupt historic binary relations and create new narratives & ways of being in the world.
