There Must Be Some Mistake

6 February 2019

Combining aspects of drawing, photography, collage, tapestry and text, Benjamin Stanwix's practice pieces together works from a variety of sources in an effort to reflect on the ways in which we make sense of the past, with a particular interest in contradictions and distortions as spaces for productive engagement.

In this exhibition the artist presents a series of drawings and tapestries that rely on the "mistake" or "misinterpretation" for their generative force. The work emerges from a process of speculative engagement with images in the studio where the influence of the internet as a research tool is apparent. 'There Must Be Some Mistake' is at once an observation about the resulting work as well as a contradictory intention in the activity of making.
