Benjamin Armstrong - Holding a Thread | Author: Juliana Engberg

Widely exhibited in his native Australia, Benjamin Armstrong began as a sculptor, employing diverse materials like wax, wood and glass. Armstrong now pursues his obsessions with horror and beauty in various media, including drawings, photography and prints.

Holding A Thread is Armstrong's first monograph, heavily illustrated with ten years of elegant but unsettling work that, as Juliana Engberg states in her introductory essay, focuses on a kind of trauma of looking. Also included is Charlotte Days interview with Armstrong in which he discusses the act of viewing, the influence of literature, and the role of art in non-western and ancient cultures.
