lives and works in London (UK)

Ali Glover (b. 1993, West Midlands, UK) is a London-based artist whose site-based interventions consider how architectural infrastructures can shift aspects of behaviour and psychological patterns. His installation acts as an intermediary or side space, like that of a page margin, where idle thoughts get passed from the periphery into the main. He is interested in how forms of language (architectural, image or sonic) used in those in-between moments can lead to something from being overlooked to visible.

Glover makes reference to particular aspects of the space by borrowing familiar or institutional elements such as the floor tiles, security lights and exposed stud walls. Articulated through field recordings of hauntings in urban environments, he collapses moments from these actualities into cerebral spaces or daydreams.

Glover graduated from Chelsea College of Art in 2015 and completed the MFA Fine Art programme at Goldsmiths in 2022. In early 2022 he was commissioned by Harshadha Balasubramanian and Caraboo Projects to develop an audio work in response to descriptions of the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. He has also developed a project at Z/KU Berlin for 3 months of residence in 2023. His recent exhibitions include things fall apart; the centre cannot hold, Tabula Rasa Gallery (London, 2023); Terminal Parlour, Split Gallery (London, 2023); loose teeth, Commonage Projects (London, 2023); Ghost Show - The Haunted House, Peckham (London, 2022); The Worm at the Core, Woolwich (London, 2022); Tilt, 310 NXRD (London, 2021); my horse ate your crocodile’s tooth and scratched its back on a metal slab, 43 Madron Street (London, 2020); A Sight Of (Curated), Proposition Studios (London, 2020). Glover is also part of F.A.F, a collective formed by himself, Henry Burns and Ruairi Fallon. Their collective show As a Child with a Matchstick Castle was presented at Staffordshire St Gallery (London, 2023).
