Ingrid Bolton was born in Johannesburg South Africa in 1963. She now resides and works in Cape Town. Bolton’s area of interest is taking pressing global issues and bringing them into the public space for discussion. Installation is the predominant medium she uses but has also included videography. With her medical technology background in microbiology, her interest fuels the need to make the microscopic world visible. A few years spent running an organic farm with her family leads the natural focus of her attention to be on the changes in climate conditions and the weather.
Exhibitions | Re-connect Cubed
Ingrid Bolton’s solo exhibition entitled Reconnect explores the tensions between the binary opposites of chaos and structure, connectivity and disruption, man and nature, technology and art. Using connective cables as metaphor to investigate our reliance on structured systems of communication, Bolton creates intricate cityscapes which simultaneously speaks of technological advancement and destruction. How we define our contemporary society is integrally linked with how we employ technology, how we communicate and connect … and cables.
