Throw your House out the Window

TICK TACK cordially invites you to celebrate the opening of 'Throw your House out the Window'
For its first duo exhibition, TICK TACK brings together the work of Mike Ballard and Michael Weißköppel, both presenting new in-situ works that challenge the physical en mental boundaries between inside and out.

The work of Mike Ballard (1972, London, UK) is made up of construction hoardings sourced from several sites across London. Ballard takes this material, that normally represents a threshold of ownership and protection of property, and transforms it into a 3D structure of its own, to be admired for its un-painterly qualities and the ‘witness marks’ of the time it stood on the street.

A pioneering post-digital artist, Michael Weißköppel (1969, Bocholt, DE) references and incorporates digital processes into his highly charged works. The immediacy of spray-painted marks and rapid erasures smash up against formal landscapes. While from a distance Weißköppel’s landscapes feel photographic, each is painted in a manner that hints at abstraction and the urgency of 21st-century culture.
