VINYL FACTORY

Robin Rhode: Variants


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).
