Bone Black Tempera is a series of costumes in which natural materials are explored and choreographed as wearable objects. The artist combines traditional (painting) methods and hi-tech mechanization with folding techniques from East Asia. During This Road Show, the first design will be shown to the public.
Ronald Bal is a Rotterdam-based visual artist mainly focusing on live art, storytelling, installation and lens-based media. His work deals with danger and fragility in intimate systems and natural events. Inspired by social exchange, cyborgs, history and ecology in the field of anthropology, he is currently focusing on the organic body and digital text.
He simulates the physical and the virtual by re-animating personal data combined with live events, on the border of theatre and visual art. In his installations, repetitions of images and body movements are combined to support their narrative structure. During This Art Fair, Bal will show a 3-channel film installation, with a Live Art program, together with Jolanda Jansen, made possible by P.S. Performance Site (The Hague).www.ronaldbal.com
