Roger Ballen. Call of the Void

Roger Ballen (*1950, New York lives in Johannesburg) is one of the most influential and important photographic artists of the 21st century. His strange and extreme works confront the viewers and challenge them to come with him on a journey into their own minds as he explores the deeper recesses of his own. Through the 1990s, he developed a photographic style he describes as Ballenesque. Over the past decade, Ballen has created powerful artworks in which the line between fantasy and reality becomes increasingly blurred. He employs drawings, painting, collage and sculptural techniques to create elaborate sets – the perfect match to Tinguely’s Dance of Death, as the show will be shown in close proximity to this work.
