Artist & Work
b. 1974, North Tipperary
John Gerrard’s sculptures and installations take the form of digital simulations displayed using real-time computer graphics. They invoke the history of landscape painting and photography, and are positioned somewhere between fiction and documentary. Many works feature geographically isolated industrial facilities—such as solar-power stations, factories, and oilrigs—that remain a hidden part of the global production network. Part of innumerable group shown internationally, his solos have been held in Beijing, London, Antwerp, Tokyo, New York, Istanbul, Melbourne, Galway, Perth and Madrid, among other cities.
