Liam Benson will be performing as part of the Free Fall line up at Oxford Art Factory over two nights on Friday 29th and Sat 30th June.

"Introduced in 2011, Free Fall transformed the glass cube of Oxford Art Factory into a series of live art installations. These installations, performed between the glass of the multi-roomed live music venue, interacted with the gig-goers and audience members, incorporating the use of colour, endurance, movement and other experimental processes.

Free Fall's founding curator and performer John A. Douglas is now ready to announce the launch of his 2012 program. Commencing Saturday June 9, Free Fall will return with some of the stand out and most talked about artists from 2011. 

All of the artists featured in this year's Free Fall have maintained a strong exhibition presence throughout the Australian contemporary art world since their debut, so this year expect to see some extraordinary work performed in the cube.

A myriad of themes and concepts - Greek mythology, the everyday, iconography, cultural identity, the carnvalesque, death and the body - will be explored through visual transformation and actions, often demanding unwavering physical endurance. Each performance will be documented on video and uploaded to the Free Fall Youtube  channel.

The Free Fall concept is a fresh approach to art making using spontaneity and imagination to connect with  audiences outside of the generic gallery space and into the bustling night time environment of the Oxford Art Factory." (Free Fall exhibition catalogue)
