Guy Benfield: MAXIMUM COMMUNE

Maximum Commune (Ugly Business... on the basis of disbelief.) Talking with Australian New York based artist Guy Benfield, about his performance/installation work Maximum Commune, part of the Aftermath: Performance Installation series curated by Blair French at Sydney's ART SPACE gallery, right next to the harbour. With the USS Kitty Hawk moored across the street, Guy walked and talked us through his unique work and world.

"Maximum Commune... utilises the cultural model of the 'pavilion' juxtaposed with tropes of modernist architecture, examples of hand-built alternative Zome housing originating from Southern California in the 1960s and collectives such as Drop City. Within these structures, Guy Benfield performs a series of actions, 'droppings' or situational episodes that re-animate tropes that were once declared obsolete, such as ritual, live action painting in the genre of george mathieu, the 'Art informal' movement in France, and the Japanese actionist painting movement - Gutai group. In these performance scenarios Benfield investigates the West Coast Funk Ceramic movement of the late sixties, pottery as an expressionist dialogue and the bourgeois bohemian lifestyle he experienced while growing up insuburban Sydney."

Some of the challenges are entirely my fault: I forget things, I forget to mention things - and no matter now many times I write everything down, invariably there is something forgotten ;-)On the flip side, i find that ordering over the phone is frustrating:- wait times on hold- difficulties in undertanding accents over the phone- challenges with folks not understanding English, and having to repeat phone numbers and addresses 4-5 timesIt's not unusual for it to take 10 minutes to order dinner over the phone for me ;-)So - online ordering, no fuss, no muss, confirmation of exactly what i ordered, no frustration for me or the folks on the other side of the phone.:-).

If you do go on this trip try to remember to take some school supplies to donate to the local school as the people really are poor, the Monster Trucks sponsor some of the schools in the area enabling the poorest families to send their kids to school! You could also take t/shirts or clothes that you no longer require to give to the people, my husband did and the old man we gave a shirt to was proudly wearing it as we passed back through his village at the end of the tour..
