Artist talk MOME /// Roger Ballen

június 10 @ 18:00 - 21:00 CEST

In collaboration with the Hungarian House of Photography we kindly invite you to the artist talk of Roger Ballen held at the MOME film studio at MOME Two (Zugligeti út 9-25) on the 10th of June, 2022.
In this talk the artist will focus on his video works. The admission is free and the talk will be in English.
The event is organized on occasion of the solo show titled BALLENESQUE – ROGER BALLEN SZERINT A VILÁG opening at the Hungarian House of Photography (Mai Manó Ház) on view from the 8th of June, 2022.
Born in the US and based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Roger Ballen is one of the most important photographers of his generation. He has published over 25 books internationally, most recently Roger the Rat published by Hatje Cantz in 2020. In 2017 Thames and Hudson published his book Ballenesque, a major retrospective of his collected works. His images are in many of the most important international museum collections. Thames and Hudson will be releasing a second volume of Ballenesque in paperback in 2022.
In his artistic practice Ballen has increasingly been won over by the possibilities of integrating photography and drawing. He has expanded his repertoire and extended his visual language. By integrating drawing into his photographic and video works, the artist has not only made a lasting contribution to the field of art, but equally has made a powerful commentary about the human condition and its creative potential.
Ballen has been the creator of several acclaimed and exhibited short films that dovetail with his photographic series’. The collaborative film I Fink You Freeky, created for the cult band Die Antwoord in 2012, has garnered over 125-million hits on YouTube. He has taken his work into the realms of sculpture and installation, of which many of them have been voted as the best exhibition with installations since 2016.
Roger Ballen is one of the artists currently representing South Africa at the Venice Biennale Arte 2022 in April this year.
