Water Enough for one Root

"...Benish has presented her work in the context of complex installations in which formal qualities and a vocabulary of consonant iconographical images set up mental reverberations. The work has always evinced a desire to challenge the domincance of traditional fineart categories and teh singular "work" as commodity. New, howeber, is the engagement wit process apparent in Benishs use of sound and th epromised of touch. Insinuating the passage of time, this suggeestion of synesthesia arises most notably in the slow mmelting and persistent "echoes" of the "ice " pieces: The Period between Two Events and Uxorial Fountain, as well as, in this exhibition, Second Echo (for Narcissus)."
