Scott Benzel (American, b. 1968).
Born in 1968 in Scottsdale, AZ, Scott lives and works in Los Angeles. “Scott Benzel's sculptures, installations and photographs function both as deep investigations of cultural histories and as pieces in a coded game of chance. Benzel combines remnants and ephemera to illustrate how often our most meaningful relationships form through a triangulation of contingency, timing and pure luck. Each work embeds an element of risk, sometimes via a performative creative process, or by framing chance encounters in the context of an exhibition.” —Lee Foley
One of a series of addenda to Benzel's 2020 exhibition Mindless Pleasures, the work LSD Cologne combines ready-made elements—a bottle of novelty cologne circa 1971, a nickel chrome steel tripod, lab apparatus and a latex poppy—to continue the artist's investigation into the ways in which consumer objects, principles of composition and display apparatus act upon the human consciousness.
