Robin Rhode: Catch AirRobin Rhode: Catch Air

Published by Wexner Center for the Arts/The Ohio State University.
Text by Catharina Manchanda, Claire Tancons. Foreward by Sherri Geldin.

This limited-edition volume of 1,000 copies accompanies South African artist Robin Rhode's first solo survey exhibition at a U.S. museum, Ohio's Wexner Center. Raised in Cape Town and Johannesburg, Rhode has gained recognition with his playful photography, video and installation works that often reference graffiti culture and combine drawing and performance. Rhode's focus is on the tensions between the liberating energies of the individual's imagination and the confines of media-driven stereotypes and received conceptions of identity. Catch Air features 12 of Rhode's signature photographic sequences related to his drawing/performances, several digital animations, films, videos and an installation of sculptural objects. It also contains eight foldout pages that fully document selected works, including the complete nearly 200-image sequence "Color Chart" (2004- 2006), and a lengthy interview between Robin Rhode and Catharina Manchanda, Wexner Center Senior Curator of Exhibitions.

Robin Rhode: Who Saw WhoRobin Rhode: Who Saw Who

Published by Hayward Publishing.
Text by Michele Robecchi, Stephanie Rosenthal, James Sey.

Born in South Africa in 1976, Berlin-based Robin Rhode uses the barest of means to comment on urban poverty, the politics of leisure and the commodification of youth cultures. Drawing plays a crucial role in his inventive, witty and playful performances, photographs and video animations, which are often created on the street, and entail Rhode, mimelike, interacting with two-dimensional representations of everyday objects--for example, drawing a candle and attempting to blow it out, or painting a bicycle and trying to ride it. Recently, he has moved toward more abstract forms in paintings and drawings and has also begun to make sculpture. Robin Rhode: Who Saw Who, a generously illustrated volume, is published concurrently with an exhibition at The Hayward, London and introduces a discourse on the dynamic work of this rising young artist.

Robin Rhode: Walk OffRobin Rhode: Walk Off

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Stephanie Rosenthal. Text by Stephanie Rosenthal, Thomas Boutoux, André Lepecki.

Robin Rhode, born in 1976 in Cape Town, combines drawing and performance to create a sometimes grotesque effect; for example, painting the top view of a bike on a sidewalk and then photographing himself sitting on its seat, legs apart. This volume documents his drawings, photographs and videos.

Robin Rhode: VariantsRobin Rhode: Variants

Published by Vinyl Factory.

The Vinyl Factory is pleased to present a collaboration with trailblazing South African artist Robin Rhode.

Produced by Rhode with arrangements by Arenor Anuku, 'Variants' is the soundtrack to six short films created by the artist for his show at White Cube, London in 2011. The films and artwork take the classic chair designs of Gerrit Rietveld, icons of modernity, as a source of inspiration to raise questions about identity. Each of the edition’s gatefold sleeves has been hand-stenciled by the artist at his studio in Berlin.

Robin Rhode’s work often uses the street as his canvas or his backdrop, alluding to hip-hop and graffiti, and he often operates within the gritty aesthetic associated with that culture.

A provocateur and cultural subversive, Rhode shares conceptual links with artists as varied as Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Hammons and the Russian constructivists.

Yet, these "high art" associations do not negate his equally strong ties to popular cultural phenomena such as rappers Wu-Tang Clan, Nike , graffiti art, and music-video director Hype Williams.

Working predominantly with everyday material like charcoal, chalk and paint, Rhode started out creating performances that are based on his own drawings of objects that he interacts with. He expanded and refined this practice into creating photography sequences and digital animations. These works are characterized by an interdisciplinary approach that brings aspects of performance, happening, drawing, film and photography together.

Rhode has exhibited widely, with notable shows at the Hayward Gallery (London), LACMA (Los Angeles), Perry Rubenstein (New York) and Haus der Kunst (Munich).
