Whitechapel Gallery

Benedict Drew works across video, sculpture and music, creating large-scale multimedia installations which comment on the effects of socio-political and environmental issues. The artist’s most ambitious public presentation in the UK is on show at the Whitechapel Gallery this summer.

The Trickle-Down Syndrome is a new work comprising five connected yet distinct spaces which draw on wide-ranging references, from Hollywood director Busby Berkley’s 1930s stage-sets to the Surrealist landscapes of Max Ernst, continuing the artist’s exploration into materiality, where the physical and digital meet.
