Artist Adam Ball is having a month-long installation at Northacre’s Orchard Place


Northacre, London’s leading developer of exquisite residences, is hosting the month-long exhibition of a leading artist, Adam Ball. Starting from 16th November 2023, the installation is at Orchard Place, the new destination at the heart of The Broadway, the super-prime developer’s first mixed-use regeneration project located in the heart of Westminster and St James’s, designed by Squire & Partners.

Presented by Shake  Gallery, Adam Ball’s highly anticipated solo exhibition, ‘Chaosmos’, invites visitors to embark on an infinite journey of existence in the rhythmic interplay of creation and renewal. Through a symphony of purification and bold pigments, the artist captures the essence of growth and continuity, guiding us on a visual pilgrimage through diverse mediums including paintings, intricate cut-outs, charcoal drawings, wooden wall-based sculptures and a light installation.

Curated by Martin Mayorga, this exhibition is an odyssey of endless movement, where each artwork propels visitors forward, unveiling the ceaseless beauty of forging ahead. In the vibrant fabric of existence, the Adam uncovers echoes of growth where every element follows a recurring pattern — a life rhythm that speaks to the interconnectedness of all things, evoking a sense of euphoria.

Revealed within this body of work is a narrative of recycling energies, birthing new possibilities and the shared responsibility for our world. Navigating the delicate equilibrium between evolution and preservation, the artwork resonates with the imperative to coexist within our surroundings and re-appropriate resources for a more enduring future.

Perpetual renewal becomes a metaphor for the delicate balance between control and risk. The canvases, while meticulously crafted, also embody an element of risk — an orchestrated unpredictability that adds a dynamic edge. Each Adam’s stroke is a calculated risk, a dance between authority and spontaneity, mirroring the fragile calmness existing in the journey of progress. Amidst the layers, a glimmer of hope surfaces, an intensity of colour radiating from the artworks — an ode to the resilience inherent in the human spirit and the brilliance that lies within our unified potential.

This act of creation, however, is not without its counterpart. Creation and dissolution engage in a subtle duet on Adam Ball’s canvases, echoing the relentless cycle of birth and decay, reminding us that improvement often necessitates letting go of the old to make space for the new.

Amy Wardell, Head of Brand, Northacre, says: “The British capital is a magnet for international art and Northacre is delighted to be celebrating London’s arts season with this exhibition showcasing new works by Adam Ball. The creative industries are core to community on many levels and we look forward to further collaborations with arts and art institutions as Orchard Place continues to thrive as a new destination for Westminster and St James’s.”
