John Gerrard
Artist

John Gerrard (b. 1974, Ireland) is an artist best known for his commitment to large-scale works that take the form of real-time computer simulations, created in painstaking detail over the course of many months or years.

A key contemporary figure in the development of digital media, his works are simulations and virtual worlds deceptively looking like film or video. The works frequently refer to structures of power and networks of energy that have made possible the expansion of human endeavor in the past century. Recent solo presentation include: Western Flag, commissioned by Channel 4, presented by Somerset House, London (2017); Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China (2016); and Exercise, Darmstadt Kunsthalle, Darmstadt, Germany (2015). Gerrard has presented work in many international group shows including EVA in 2010, and most recently at Manifesta 12 Palermo.

Gerrard is represented by Thomas Dane Gallery, London, and Simon Preston Gallery, New York
