Oroborus, 2008 was part of the show Zero Zone at Tracy Williams Gallery and curated by David Hunt.

“In The Swing, Benson gives a dark salute to the ostentation and frivolity of the Rococo, in a sinister, raven sculpture referencing Fragonard’s famous swing. Using such materials as tar, ostrich feathers, mirror and steel cables, Benson alludes to the excesses of vanity, as she does with her piece Ouroborus (Naked Swan) which metaphorically (and quite literally) references the destructive ramifications of narcissism.”
