UNSW Art & Design Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate Beth Dillon is a master of creative pursuits and time management. She’s an artist interested in the comic, the strange and the beautiful. Her work explores expressive ambiguities of the performing body, visual constructions of place and identity, and potential roles of the artist in contemporary society.
Beth has travelled the world and uses photography, video, performance and installation to explore her subject matter. In addition to a bourgeoning solo career, Beth is also a founding member of a Sydney-based trio of artists called 110%. The trio share an interest in amateur choreography and performative interventions, often taking the form of improvised performance works that take place in the context and environment of festivals and museum and gallery settings.
As if this weren’t enough, Beth has joined forced with Berlin-based designer and performance artist, Anton Benois, to create Dillon-Benois. She splits her time between Germany and Australia. Their playful and haunting videos, installations and perfomances are often set in remote landscapes. The collaborative pair are also winning recognition internationally with residencies and exhibitions presented in Iceland and the Netherlands among other locations. Having recently been exhibited in Europe, Beth and Anton’s artworks can now be viewed in exhibitions in Australia.
