Miss Benn is a beautiful new sculptural installation by Simmy Gupta. It draws passers-by into the imaginary world of the sari shop mannequin.
The hexagonal installation houses the mannequin Miss Benn, and asks the audience to follow her journey as she moves from the shop window into her imagination.
Miss Benn is a unique piece of visual art which can also house integrated soundscapes.
Wandsworth Council commissioned Miss Benn to host Tailors of Tooting – a soundscape that combines real stories and memories of local residents about mannequins, saris and fashion.
Tailors of Tooting was presented as part of the Wandsworth Arts Festival.
Commissioned by Wandsworth Council Arts Team.
Miss Benn is one module of Nutkhut’s Mannequins Series.
