Kyle Morland

Working across disciplines in sculpture, photography and video, Kyle Morland’s primary interests lie in forms, the systems that create them, and industrial modes of production. He often sets himself rules, and creates the necessary tools, to realise his ideas which add a set of formal constraints to the creative process and resulting work.

Morland graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2009. He has held seven solo exhibitions to date, most recently Assemble at blank projects (2016). He has participated in several group exhibitions, both locally and internationally, in Now and Then: Kyle Morland / El Loko at Zeitz MOCCA (2017), Off the Wall: An 80th Celebration with Linda Givon at WITS Art Museum (2016) and Flag New York City as part of Performa 13 in New York (2013). In 2018, Morland was artist-in-residence at the A4 Arts Foundation in Cape Town as part of the exhibition Parallel Play.

Morland lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa.
