ROBIN RHODE

25/05/2012 - 27/05/2012 ISTANBUL'74 KARAKÖY

Robin Rhode (b. 1976, Cape Town, South Africa) uses photography, performance, drawing and sculpture, and the quotidian materials of charcoal, chalk and paint, to comment on urban youth culture, postcolonial context, and society at large. His work stands out for its simplicity and formal clarity, often involving narrative and traces of the artist’s actions. He graduated from the South African School of Film, Television and Dramatic Arts, Johannesburg, in 2000.
