Bennett Miller


Bennett Miller works across sculpture, installation, video and performance. His practice reflects on the relationship between humans and animals as an allegory of human society and culture. A continuing interest of his work is the incorporation of live animals into his artistic process and, in some cases, the finished work.
A popular example of Miller's work is the Dachshund UN- wherein live dachshund dogs take the place of diplomats from the United Nations. This work has been shown in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Birmingham, Toronto and Montreal. Miller hopes one day to also stage this work in Japan.


Throughout his residency at 3331 Bennett intends to study cultural relationships that exist between Japanese people and animals. Within this, the 'Tanuki' (and the mythology surrounding it) is a key interest for him, as are the many anthropomorphized pets that populate the city.
Bennett will present an open studio and talk to commence the residency, and an exhibition of some new and existing works at its conclusion.
