Holly Ward is a Vancouver/Berlin-based interdisciplinary artist working with sculpture, multimedia installation, architecture, video and drawing as a means to examine the role of aesthetics in the formation of new social realities. Based on research of various visionary practices such as utopian philosophy, science fiction literature, Visionary Architecture, countercultural practices and urban planning, her work investigates the arbitrary nature of symbolic designation and the use-value of form in a social context. Inherent in this is a desire to activate various forms of speculative thinking and collective engagement.
