Bio

Grant Legassick is a South African / British artist whose work is fundamentally linked with technology. Working across moving images, networks, data, and new media, Legassick explores a world of accelerating technology, inquiring into not only the way in which we live,  interact, and think, but also into the ways in which we make art.  His current practice is influenced by our algorithmic culture, the networked environment, social media, and digital society.

His work has been exhibited at The Tate Modern (London), Somerset House (London), at the London Science Museum, at Riflemaker Gallery (London), FIX Photo Festival (Bargehouse, London), AKAA (Paris) and toured worldwide to galleries in London, New York, Amsterdam and Athens. He was shortlisted in the Ashurst Emerging Artist prize 2015, the 2015 Sony World Photography Awards, the 2014 National Open Art Competition, the 2014 Lumen Prize, the 2014 Celeste Prize, the 2014 International Colour Awards, and the 2012 International Colour Awards.

Grant is currently studying MA Contemporary Photography; Practices and Philosophies at Central Saint Martins, London.
