WATER ENOUGH FOR ONE ROOT

"...Benish has presented her work in the context of complex installations in which formal qualities and a vocabulary of consonant iconographical images set up mental reverberations. The work has always evinced a desire to challenge the dominance of traditional fine art categories and the singular "work" as commodity. New, however, is the engagement wit process apparent in Benish's use of sound and the epromised of touch. Insinuating the passage of time, this suggestion of synesthesia arises most notably in the slow melting and persistent "echoes" of the "ice " pieces: The Period between Two Events and Uxorial Fountain, as well as, in this exhibition, Second Echo (for Narcissus)."
