6 - 9pm, Thursday 29th Aug
Mike Ballard - Gutter Snipe
Ballard will be showing his most ambitious sculpture to date. A new piece especially made for this space, constructed from wooden building site hoardings sourced from various locations across London.
As an artist living in London, surrounded by the wave of gentrification flooding the city, Ballard is a spectator of the everyday urban environment in its constant flux. Using the cityscape as his primary source for material - discarded building materials, site hoardings, the ripped and weathered stickers and posters from illicit advertising - Ballard conveys the weight of visual noise displayed in the urban matter, immortalizing the fabric of a city.
