FEATURED ARTIST: Kiron Robinson
Utilizing a range of material strategies including neon, video, photography and installation, Kiron Robinson (b 1975, lives and works in Melbourne, Australia) investigates the idea of doubt, faith and failure as constructive devices. Robinson’s work continually chases ways of articulating, that which by its own definition is beyond articulation. This leads to points of paradox within the work that results in materials unravelling as they construct. Robinson’s work searches for a state of simultaneity where a material is both what it is and what it is not. Materials are chosen and placed with great care.
Recent and upcoming projects include exhibitions at Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA), Taipei, POSCO Museum of Art, Seoul, Sth Korea, Monash University Faculty Gallery, Melbourne and Kurumuya Museum, Japan.
