London-based artist Mike Ballard presents his work made during his Artist Residency at KARST.


London-based artist Mike Ballard will present a site specific installation at the conclusion of his month long Artist Residency at KARST. Working within KARST residency space Studio 2, Ballard has spent the month adapting his practice to fit within Plymouth's environment. The presented work will show how Ballard has used the KARST Artist Residency to inform his practice; the exhibition is open to all.


Born 1972, Works and Lives London, graduated M.A Fine Art Central Saint Martins College London, 2007

Ballard’s practice is inspired by the abstract compositions found in the urban environment, as well as the territorial gestures that divide public and private space. Taking substance from flâneur style wanderings through cities, Ballard weaves together an accumulative and regenerative language of city infrastructure, patterned by materials such as building site hoardings; the remains of illicit advertising and painted pavement markings.
