Version animée 2006 — Installations — 17 october - 17 december 2006
Born in 1976, lives and works in Berlin
Robin Rhode grew up in a suburb of Johannesburg. His art is strongly influenced by his South African roots and street culture (sports, music, and fashion). Rhode is convinced that art has a practical and educational function. He has proclaimed himself a contemporary revolutionary artist. His performances take place in public spaces, i.e., squares, the street, or parks, and explore issues revolving around the culture, identity, history and socio-economic realities of the new South Africa.
He starts off his performances by drawing an initial motif on a wall with a stick of charcoal, then begins to interact in that tridimensionality and tell viewers a story.
"Version" will show his work, The Storyteller (2006)
