Roger Ballen. Call of the Void (Danse macabre No. VII) – Christophe Guye Galerie

Roger Ballen. Call of the Void is the eighth in a series of exhibitions at Museum Tinguely under the title Danse macabre with works responding to Jean Tinguely’s late work Mengele Totentanz, shown in direct proximity to it. While Anouk Kruithof. Universal Tongue focussed on dance and Bruce Conner. Light out of Darkness on the apocalypse, the link this time is the disturbing, unsettling quality of Roger Ballen’s photographs and installations. In his work, Ballen examines the human psyche and asks both himself and the viewer questions about being and becoming.
