Benjamin S. Beauchamp is a multi-disciplined artist, art technician and intermittent wrangler of words, based in Norwich, with a BA in Fine Art from NUA. Currently he works at Norwich University of the Arts as a Media Technician, whilst sustaining an independent practice. He has participated in exhibitions in Norwich, Colchester and Cambridge, having worked with a number of other artists, poets and photographers, for a range of events primarily in East Anglia. His documentation images published in Asethetica Magazine, Dazed & Confused Feature, and Tate Liverpool.
Perpetually intrigued by societal interactions, communication technologies and engaging in a critical discourse surrounding the man/machine dichotomy; his multi-faceted, multi-media practice, includes dysphoric digital works, audio/visual materials integrating installation and public performative elements with frenzied imagery, alongside a sustained technical interest in the transition between mediums, engaging with digital sculpture and painting projects, in addition to the post-Structuralist and Deconstructionist media examinations resulting in abstract film works; to generate a partially refined chaos that amplifies the interference to find harmonies in the feedback.
By exploiting mechanical fallibility to abstract the objective, distort the subjective, and undermine the perceptive, with a relentlessly frantic curiosity, he explores the effects and use of mediation, manipulation and the information overload, capitalising on contextually informed conceptual aestheticism in order to produce a dynamic multitude of works, provoking stimulating debate and discussion.
Debaucherous reality is made monstrous by unconscious perceptions rendered conspicuous through his endeavours.
He dreams a body electric.
