Ben Cain is primarily involved in the production of installations, vinyl records, performances and printed matter which deal with the convergence of theatre and documentary information, with a particular interest in facilitating and highlighting the viewer’s role in the emergence of a subject.
The work tends to be formed through interplay of saying and doing, of production and description, where specific outcomes remain unstable and illusive. Recent projects have increasingly focussed on sight and speech in the process of creating work that oscillates between the visible and non-visible, the physical and the imagined, with this afternoon's performance developing these concerns.
