Katalog Robin Rhode
The mid-career retrospective of the South African artist Robin Rhode (*1976, Cape Town) is accompanied by a richly illustrated publication edited by Uta Ruhkamp. Robin Rhode creates his works on public walls. He photographically captures each step of the visual short story as it develops. His unique hallmark is the innovative combination of drawing, body, object and wall. In his complex artworks he succeeds in a contextual balancing act between South African history, culture, and mindset, as well as its signs and codes, and the abstract language of European-American art history. The publication contains a foreword by Andreas Beitin and Florian Steininger, an introduction by Uta Ruhkamp, a comprehensive and very personal conversation with the artist, poems by Don Mattera, James Matthews, and Gladys Thomas, and an interview with Robin Rhode by Dor Guez on the newly created Jericho works.
(German/English; 224 pages, ca. 167 illustrations, Price: 34 €).
