Robin Rhode Book Description :

Born in Cape Town and raised in Johannesburg, Berlin-based multidisciplinary artist Robin Rhode has gained steady international recognition for his simultaneously witty, playful and provocative photographic, video and installation works. Although Rhode's practice is highly conceptual, it is also informed by a wide range of references from everyday life and street culture, including hip hop and graffiti culture. Many of Rhode's works reflect the politics of his hometown Johannesburg and shine a light on issues such as the conceptions of identity, media stereotypes and personal relationship to place. The Call of Walls is the first major Australian showcase of Rhode's prolific and varied oeuvre. This exciting title features eleven of Rhode's signature sequential photographic works (alongside stills from his animation and film-based work), brilliantly showcased in a foldout plate section. Maggie Finch's engaging and comprehensive essay delves into Rhode's personal history and background, which, in turn, heavily informs his practice.

Robin Rhode Book Description :

Born in Cape Town and raised in Johannesburg, Robin Rhode's art uses the barest of means to comment on urban poverty, the politics of leisure and the commodification of youth cultures. He combines large-scale charcoal drawings with charming and sharp-witted performances, often acted out on the street. In his work, Rhode tries to interact with two-dimensional representations of everyday objects; he draws a candle and tries to blow it out; he sketches 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. Rhode will also create site-specific works on Southbank Centre's site.

Robin Rhode Book Description :

The Cape Town-born, Berlin-based multidisciplinary artist Robin Rhode (born 1976) engages photography, performance, drawing and sculpture to create arrestingly beautiful narratives that are brought to life using materials such as soap, charcoal, chalk and paint. Coming of age in a newly post-apartheid South Africa, Rhode was exposed to new forms of creative expression motivated by the spirit of the individual rather than dictated by a political or social agenda. This new Hatje Cantz publication emphasizes the influence of Arte Povera on Rhode's aesthetic, whose creative dialogue also formed during his meeting with the gallery Tucci Russo and his early collaborative efforts with photographer Paolo Mussat Sartor, in which he transformed urban landscapes and interior spaces into imaginary worlds, as two-dimensional renderings become the subject of three-dimensional interactions by a sole protagonist (usually played by the artist or by an actor inhabiting the role of artist).

Robin Rhode Book Description :

Robin Rhode's trademark is the wall. His works are influenced by urban music culture, film, popular sports, youth culture, and traditional South African storytelling. They are created in the public space, on walls. It's not about the statement that he leaves behind on the street, though--it's about the pro-cess. Hence, in his visual short stories he captures the links between drawing, performance, and sculpture, step by step. No body without a line, no line without a body. With drawing as his starting point, he develops increasingly complex photo-graphic works, digital animations, performances, sculptures, and works on paper, which comprise a content-related balanc-ing act between South African history, culture, mindset, signs, and codes and the abstract language of European-Ameri-can art history. This richly illustrated catalogue accompanies Rhode's first solo show in twelve years in Germany. Besides pictures of the art itself, the book also contains an interview, an introductory essay, and poems by South African authors, to which his work often refers.

Robin Rhode Book Description :

Most famously shot against a ruined wall in Westbury, Johannesburg, Rhode's images cling nostalgically-yet-hopelessly to the particularity of a place in the very moment that longing is canceled out. Symptoms of exile, screeds for loss, they evoke a sentiment shared by the great Palestinian humanist, Edward Said, for whom 'A part of something is for the foreseeable future going to be better than all of it. Fragments over wholes. Restless nomadic activity over the settlements of held territory. Criticism over resignation ... limited independence over the status of clients. Attention, alertness, focus. To do as others do, but somehow stand apart. To tell a story in pieces, as it is.' In Geometry of Colour, however, Rhode presents us with an even greater challenge - the mystic search for wholeness in the very midst of its impossibility. For Rhode the glimmer of an answer resides in geometry - the necessary illusion of perfectibility. Moving between abstract speculation and visceral record, the book tracks productive years in the artist's life, between 2014 and 2018. More a wager in the present tense than an edifying catalogue, Geometry of Colour is a vital challenge to our current disaffection. It is a testimony, perhaps, that art can still save us.

Changing Roles Book Description :

"How are you involved in the art world? Are you related to any art scene? What would be the most productive place to present your work? What kind of curators do you like to work with and why? What does the art market mean for your work? In your opinion, what are centers for contemporary art for? What would you like to see them presenting?" "These are seven simple and open questions on different aspects of today's art world that were asked to every artist involved in Witte de With's program in 2006 and 2007. The resulting publication reflects on some of the topics touched upon in the program of the past two years - for example, in group shows such as Street: behind the cliche - looking at the best place for art, the role of the art institution and its curators, and the influence of "populist" forces on different forms of art production. The answers included here serve as time-documents, providing a "tour d'horizon" of artists' opinions, concerns and ambitions today, setting out a blueprint for the future role of the art institution and of its related actors (the artist, curator, critic, gallerist)."--BOOK JACKET.
