Tara Benjamin-Morgan

Tara Benjamin-Morgan (United Kingdom) Residence: March to April, 2016

Tara Benjamin-Morgan (b. 1991) is a visual artist based in the UK. She graduated from the University of Oxford in 2013 with a BFA in Fine Art and is currently applying for a Masters.

In her practice she often engages in a process akin to Chinese whispers, where drawing and redrawing, translating from one medium to another and interweaving memory allows an object or a form to continually evolve and develop new identities. Imagination intrudes into the space where recollection collapses or where there might be room for something else to exist.

Whilst at Studio Kura, her point of departure will be local landmarks – features of the surrounding area that are instantly recognisable by inhabitants of the surrounding streets. Her interest lies in their reconfiguration and animation through the agency of her practice and challenging the boundaries of its normally reassuring familiarity.

Tara’s exhibition at Studio Kura will be held on the 23rd and 24th April, 2016.
