Iain Ball


Iain Ball was born in 1985 in the UK. He received his B.F.A. at Oxford Brookes University in 2010, renowned for its socially engaged approach to art making and Beuys-orientated philosophy. During this time he also studied at RMIT in Melbourne in 2008.

Ball works across a wide spectrum of media which he constantly re-considers and builds upon, including situations, objects, digital files, textual information, collage, sound and film. His work is primarily concerned with ways in which to combat emergent feelings of alienation, loss of place and identity in contemporary late-capitalism and is a constantly evolving tapestry. His new project
E N E R G Y:P A N G E A considers the challenge of ecology and sustainability during the aftershock of a Gilded Age. It builds upon recent work such as Philips2013.org, a near future re-contextualization of the Philips brand in a post-capitalist economy.

Since graduation last year Ball has exhibited at Darsa Comfort in Zurich, New Gallery London; a solo show as part of NEW AGE DEFAULT, at Preteen in Mexico City and with The R-U-IN?s Network in Bucharest. He has also been features inKatja Novitskova's Post Internet Survival Guide, PWR paper & the R-U-IN? Catalogue #01.
