Monsieur Ducroz is obsessed with stop-motion, not only for his short animated pieces but also for his public art installations and collaborative pieces. It cannot be very healthy to focus on one single technique but like with any other field, when you specialize, you become a master.
Now living in Melbourne, Benjamin says to be inspired by the forms, patterns, and movement found in nature and the built environment working with found objects and visual abstraction.
Perfectly blending physical and digital objects the sense of a harmonious cohabitation between nature and surreal environments is always present, and thanks to this constant exploration of organic architecture he’s become one of the most solicited profiles of modern Australian art.
His works keep doing he world tour in galleries and festivals nationally and internationally including the Shanghai World Expo 2010, Asian Art Biennale (Taiwan), Australian Centre for the Moving Image (Australia), F5 festival (USA), Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid and was a speaker at this year’s Aussie Agideas festival.
