Ian Haig works across media, from video, sculpture, drawing, technology based media and installation. Haig’s practice refuses to accept that the low and the base level are devoid of value and cultural meaning. His body obsessed themes can be seen throughout a large body of work over the last twenty years. Previous works have looked to the contemporary media sphere and its relationship to the visceral body, the degenerative aspects of pervasive new technologies, to cultural forms of fanaticism and cults, to ideas of attraction and repulsion, body horror and the defamiliarisation of the human body.

The body is being enhanced, modified and upgraded. These hypermuscled morphing bods also represent the body in a state of impending collapse. The body pushed too the limit, with no place left to go. Mighty Morphing Muscle Men seek to heighten this amplified body
