Polo

Ian Ballantyne mostly creates prints and animations. Focusing on repetition and reassembly, he has seen the process of making and the moment of interpretation to be the driving forces behind his work.

ABOUT POLO

Polo is a documented series of mono prints shown as a stop-motion animation. The piece depicts the subject riding a chair while focusing on certain repetitive moments of their gallop around the screen. This repetition mimics the action of the printing process and the plate responsible for making the images, which the viewer catches glimpses of throughout the animation. The imagery, coupled with the sound of the gallop and breath of a Crillo, attempt to add grace and power to an otherwise mundane action.

The video is part of an installation with the 200 prints that compose the piece.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate.
