5 Questions to Ben Bunch (Artist)

Your third solo show, “Twenty-first Century Freemasonry”, opened on January 21 at The Proposition. What is the idea behind the title?

The title for the show is about looking for patterns inside complex systems. It is a good way to describe how I work in the studio. I start with a general impression and I accumulate parts and a framework as a piece takes shape. Freemasonry, in this context, is a term for building complex systems and meaning out of simple shapes and objects. Freemasons see their enterprise as bringing order to chaos by building the world. I too am trying to bring coherence to what I am doing in the studio.
