Jack Ball

Bringing together 10 years of Jack Ball’s practice, Wind Chill layers early photographs with new works continuing their process of undoing and re-making through collage.

The exhibition incorporates a selection of Ball’s works held in the State Art Collection, including photographs of handmade sculptural sets that are suggestive of bodies, landscape, and architecture. Placed in conversation with new work, Ball presents moments of everyday queer intimacy and images of their body in playful performances that navigate gender and self-assemblage.
