Ballon Rouge presents Matt Ager curated by Francesca Gavin

Ballon Rouge and Pi Artworks are pleased to present a new body of works by London-based and born artist Matt Ager, curated by Francesca Gavin.

Matt Ager makes sculptures from domestic materials and found objects. He is particularly interested in fluidly composing works that address mimicry, design, and architecture. Agers’s belief that objects and textures carry particular identities is continuously explored and made visible through his practice.

Ager’s work is about this re-definition; it usually includes the use of the assisted ready-made and builds narratives around social status and taste, constructing a crafted work out of something that may initially appear mundane.

The notion of the ‘unknown’ in how we develop relationships with things and people is mirrored in the making of the work. Not knowing how things might end up. Reworking, replacing, and remoulding is integral.
