London Guts

Mercedes Balle

4th July – 28th July 2024

The Stone Space Gallery presents London Guts, the first solo show of the multidisciplinary artist Mercedes Balle. London Guts is the culmination of the artist’s extensive research into what she views as the material-essence of the city through human interventions along the river, London’s architecture and geology. Balle brings these materials to the gallery space to explore their possibilities, while accepting their intrinsic nature – the passage of time, their obsolescence and their imminent transformation. While studying these materials, she analyses the transformative agent of human action and societies. Mercedes Balle is currently studying an MFA in Sculpture at Slade School of Fine Art and exhibiting at Casal Solleric, Palma de Mallorca until the 13th of October.
