Liam Benson is a performance artist who documents his work through embroidery, photography, video and new media. Benson’s work deconstructs the social perceptions of gender, race, culture, sexuality and identity by cross-referencing art, popular culture and media language. His work celebrates the evolution of these social archetypes and explores the possibilities within the cross-influence of socially entrenched identities and cultural and sub-cultural amalgamation.
