Εxhibition date 26 -09-2012

Louise Bennett presents new video work and objects that she has created in response to her experience on the island in her solo exhibition titled, Kefalonia Dreaming. These new art works explore her playful and personal engagements with the beach environment and tourist souvenirs.

Louise Bennett is a visual artist from Brisbane, Australia. Her art practice engages with the intersections of online and physical environments. By mixing video, performance and installation, her work poses questions about how our concepts of and engagements with nature and identity are shifting in contemporary contexts dominated by screen technologies and mediated experiences. Her seemingly non-committal performances in front of her iphone call into question our engagement with online content and the internet’s ability to inform our experiences offline.

Bennett graduated from a Bachelor of Fine Arts Visual Arts with Honours from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia. She has been shortlisted in the 2011 and 2012 National Churchie Emerging Art Award, shortlisted for the Jeremy Hynes Award in 2011 and was awarded The Melville Haysom Memorial Art Scholarship in 2010.
