London based artist Iain Ball (b. 1985) integrates an interrogation between the world, it’s elements and organisms, and associated conspiracies and pseudoscientific beliefs. His practice forms collections of art works within various frameworks of ideas, that together focus on neo-liberal anxieties about technological advancement and it’s ability to shape political and social views. Taking the form of sculpture, image, online activity, audio and installation (or often a project-specific assemblage of these media), the resulting works evoke a ‘science fiction meets corporate aesthetic’, and in doing so reflect a ‘neoliberal discomfort’ back to the viewer.
Selected solo exhibitions include ‘ENERGY PANGEA’ at Future Gallery, Berlin 2015, ‘(Rare Earth Sculptures) Lanthanum’ with OPENYOURKIMONO, online, London, 2014, ‘(Rare Earth Sculptures) Thulium’, at Perfect Present, Copenhagen, DK , and ‘(Rare Earth Sculptures) Cerium’, at Appendix Project Space, Portland Oregon USA.
