The world according to Roger Ballen
7/09/2109 to 31/07/2020
Roger Ballen reigns over the black-and-white world of the human psyche. Disturbing, provocative an egnigmatic, the work of this American-norn, South African photographer, expresses the sens of confusion of a man confronted by the nonsensical nature both of his life and the world in general. Ballen’s work has been the subject of exhibitions at prestigious institutions for more than thirty years now. His decision to exhibit at the Halle Saint Pierre, an atypical museum devoted to outsider art and unusul forms of creativity, demonstrates his freedom from artistic genres.
