Biography and art, auction, artworks, interview, statement, website:
Artist Jimmy Robert has won the second annual Follow FluxusAfter Fluxus grant for young contemporary artists, administered by the city government of Wiesbaden, Germany, and the Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden. Robert, born in Guadeloupe, creates photographs, collages, objects, performances, and films that focus on process and transition.
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.
