Selected Works and Exhibitions[edit]

KINDREDS: a song about animals performed at Danspace with Letitia Spangler.[6] The work celebrates ‘play’ and emotional wisdom while pushing deeper into concepts of intimacy and co-dependency. Lindsay Benedict and Letitia Spangler sought out behaviors that are present in both humans and animals.

dirty domestic a solo exhibition at Martina }{ Johnston gallery in the Bay Area of California in which the artist shares works that present her own body as a site of pleasure and conflict.[7] The exhibition presented projects in various media, including 16mm films, audio installations, photography, and painting that presents parallels between the various interior settings in which her work was created, and the artist-run gallery in which it was exhibited.[8]

Are you There? Yes. Are you there? Yes. a photograph essay exhibited in Banff, Canada and at PARMER gallery in Bedstuy, Brooklyn.[9] It is an installation of still images. On 16mm moving image film, Benedict documented two people performing a repetitive action of checking to see if the other is there. One reaching for the other, over and over again. The film was transferred into digital video then specific digital stills were chosen and arranged into vertical diptychs.

VECCHIO MERDA DANZBAND is a chaotic all-female artist collective that formed in Turin when the four core members Lindsay Benedict (US), Lia Cecchin (IT), Daniella Isamit Morales (VN) and Lisa Perrucci (IT) all met regularly and speaking in three different languages –Italian, Spanish and English.[10] They performed 'SUPERLIKERS' at Centrale Fies an hour-long performance of melancholic songs, instructional dance steps and purposeless karaoke.[11]

Baby, I just want to dance Twelve unknown dances performed in the parking lot of Le Confort Moderne in Poitiers, France.[12] Lindsay Benedict held an open-call to the local public and used a battery powered boom-box for music. Anyone was invited to perform, auditions were never held, and the dancers brought their own music on the evening of the event.[13]
