Justin Bennett (UK)

Justin Bennett is an artist working with sound and image. He studied sculpture and electronic music and much of his work combines the two aspects of sound and space. His work with sound combines spatial recordings of environmental sound with the resonances of buildings and materials. He often uses these recordings together with spoken words to immerse the audience in a story or to subtly change their perception of a place. Bennett makes work for public spaces as well as galleries, museums and concert venues.

Some of his most recent projects include: Multiplicity (2017) a residency project at Overtoon, Brussels,  Blueprint (2015) an animated film-score for live improvised music, Hyperforum  (2014) an installation at Maxxi, Rome, Secret Garden (2014) a sound work for mobile devices in Amstelpark, Amsterdam, Dream Map (2013) an audio guide for Sao Paolo, Brazil or Telettrofono, an audio walk on Staten Island, commissioned by the Solomon R. Guggenheim museum, NYC, 2012. Bennett often collaborates with other artists including BMB con., HC Gilje, Vermeir & Heiremans, Renate Zentschnig. He is represented by Jubilee, Brussels.
