Benedict Drew: The Trickle-Down Syndrome

Benedict Drew Whitechapel Gallery

Benedict Drew (b.1977) works across video, sculpture and music, creating large-scale installations which he conceives in response to major global events, commenting on the effects of socio-political and environmental issues.

Co-commissioned by Whitechapel Gallery and Art Night 2017, The Trickle-Down Syndrome is comprised of five connected yet distinct rooms drawing on wide-ranging references, from the stage sets of classic Hollywood cinematographer Busby Berkeley to the Surrealist worlds of artist Max Ernst.

Drew invites viewers through a dizzying array of kaleidoscopic projections, vividly coloured video screens, experimental synthesizer compositions, hand-drawn landscapes, large-scale banners, human-shaped sculptures, a tiered stage, painted canvas tambourines and an accompanying audio narrative all coming together to take visitors on an emotional and sensory journey.
