Three Questions by Ron Benner, Julian Jason (curator), Haladyn, Dot Tuer, Tony Weis
Three Questions features London Ontario artist Ron Benner’s recent mixed-media photographic installations, produced between 2009 and 2014, each relating to a specific question. His recent practice focuses on an examination of the politics of food and related topics, interrogating systems of knowledge connected to histories of farming, agriculture, plant science and the movement of plants around the globe. By his own account, Benner has travelled the world following the trade routes of primarily plants native to the Americas. This exhibition of gallery installations highlights key questions raised by his studio practice, research and travel.
