London-based artist Iain Ball is showing solo show, Praseodymium Intracrine Signal Aggregate at London’s Cell Project Space, opening February 18 and running April 10.
The new work is the ninth instalment of Ball’s Rare Earth Sculpture series. He has a practice that ties together form and intricate, esoteric biological and nuclear processes and research. The show takes ‘intracrine’, a natural hormone that regulates the inside of cells, as a starting point and compares it to the way in which steroids act as well as the effects of anxiety and paranoia produced by this transmutable agent.
The sculptural items, or body of work both online and offline in Praseodymium Intracrine Signal Aggregate will aim to harvest the energy of this paranoia.
