Jimmy Robert
Robert addresses the fragility of representation through photography, performance, and film. The artist often inserts his own presence into installations of found imagery which he has transformed and restaged, generating an intriguing dialectic of alienation and belonging, of “physical” and “political” action. His films, prints, happenings and publications focus around the point at which the transient characteristics of time-based-acts become institutionally solidified as writing, photography and public media. The image-object relation is crucial to Robert in this respect.
