Save Event: John Ledger - Under Digital Rain

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


We are faced with an ever-increasing bombardment of information from 24 hour rolling news to Smartphone technologies, the gap between the virtual and physical world is now muddled and confused.


In this exhibition Ledger attempts to navigate this state of uncertainty through detailed map-like drawings that satirise and question the status quo.

Ledger’s dark depiction of this reality isn’t a call to abandon the world we live in and 'return to nature'. On the contrary, the dark nature of these works brings into question that mode of engagement. They leave us stuck between a rock and a hard place, suggesting we must navigate these times in search for a better place. One in which, technologies merely enhance our lives rather than creating addicts and slaves.
