9781853322716: Robin Rhode: Who Saw Who

Born in South Africa in 1976, Berlin-based Robin Rhode uses the barest of means to comment on urban poverty, the politics of leisure and the commodification of youth cultures. Drawing plays a crucial role in his inventive, witty and playful performances, photographs and video animations, which are often created on the street, and entail Rhode, mimelike, interacting with two-dimensional representations of everyday objects--for example, drawing a candle and attempting to blow it out, or painting a bicycle and trying to ride it. Recently, he has moved toward more abstract forms in paintings and drawings and has also begun to make sculpture. Robin Rhode: Who Saw Who, a generously illustrated volume, is published concurrently with an exhibition at The Hayward, London and introduces a discourse on the dynamic work of this rising young artist.

Synopsis:

A major new talent on the international art scene, Robin Rhode's art uses the barest of means to comment on urban poverty, the politics of leisure and the commodification of youth cultures. Born in Cape Town and raised in Johannesburg, Rhode has a reputation for brilliantly inventive performances, photography and video animations in which drawing plays a crucial role. In these works, which are often created on the street, Rhode interacts with two-dimensional representations of everyday objects: he draws a candle and attempts to blow it out; he paints a bicycle and tries to ride it. Recently, he has moved towards more poetic abstract forms in paintings and drawings and has also begun to make sculpture. "Robin Rhode: Who Saw Who" includes an interview with Stephanie Rosenthal and essays by Michele Robecchi and James Sey. This is the catalogue for Robin Rhode's exhibition at The Hayward, London, 7 October to 7 December, 2008.
