Benjamin Reiss (b. 1985, Los Angeles) lives and works in Los Angeles. With a sculptural practice based as much on research as a wide range of materials and fabrication techniques, he explores the limits of understanding and agency, the unconscious, and the drive for narrative constancy in a globalized and often nonsensical world. His work has been recently shown in exhibitions at Bel Ami, Los Angeles (solo); Parker Gallery, Los Angeles; Actual Size, Los Angeles (duo); and 247365, New York. He received a BA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
