In Long time no see, Benjamin Prabowo Sexton exhibits a family portrait displayed in a glass vitrine facing the Nicholas Building arcade. The site-specific work considers how private photographs are experienced in a public context. Sexton’s photograph exists in its own realm of gestation, latent until activated by viewers passing by. Its experience depends on a certain set of circumstances to align so as to precipitate change. For Sexton, this gestational period mimics the familial—how its unit has the capacity to give birth to many different forms and co-exist harmoniously.
