Benjamin Ducroz

Melbourne-based multimedia artist Benjamin Ducroz creates dynamic single channel videos and animations inspired by forms, patterns and movement found in nature and the built environment.

His works present a fast-paced morphology of the modern artifact-in-transformation, underscored by vibrantly lyrical witticisms and impossible perspectives. Made with a blend of stop motion animation and computer graphics, they have a lively choreographic style.

Benjamin’s purist emphasis on real objects, suffused with a surreal post-architectural explosiveness, unleashes the hyperreal latency of everyday objects and obsolete technologies in a sixty-second mediaflash.

His works have been exhibited in galleries and festivals nationally and internationally, including the Shanghai World Expo 2010, Asian Art Biennale (Taiwan), Australian Centre for the Moving Image (Australia), F5 Festival (USA), Rencontres Internationales (Paris/Berlin/Madrid), d/Art Festival (Australia) and Next Wave Festival (Australia).
