CAMERON ROBBINS . EXHIBITIONS AT STOCKROOM
Cameron Robbins has been presenting his work to our Stockroom audience for many years. Stockroom regulars will know his permanent work on site; Atmospheric Test Rig which has been a constant source of fascination. We are pleased to announce Remote Drawings; an exhibition in September 2017 of Robbins work across our three gallery spaces. This significant project will be the first solo exhibition since his highly successful Field Lines, a major exhibition over nine galleries at The Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania. Cameron is the first Australian artist invited to present a large-scale solo exhibition at MONA.
Cameron Robbins work makes tangible the underlying structures and rhythms of natural forces. Robbins’ inquiries employ structural devices including kinetic wind or water powered mechanical systems. Their aesthetic is the result of both careful engineering and resourcefulness. The outputs of these site-specific installations include wind drawings and sound compositions. These interpretations of the dynamics and scale of the physical world suggest the complexities of the unknown. He has produced site-specific installations and exhibitions in art spaces, disused buildings and outdoor sites in Australia, Switzerland, Japan, Norway, China, Denmark, Germany and the UK
Stockroom Gallery, September 2017
Fresh from his recent exhibition at MONA in Hobart and an artist residency in Norway, Cameron Robbins brings his uniquely evocative kinetic sculptural practice to the warehouse spaces of Stockroom.
Harnessing erratic energies as creative forces Cameron is a master of the generative power of controlled chaos.
Exploring the effort required in erasure, for his new work Loggerheads, he engineers processes that appeal to the creative potency of negation. This is a special opportunity to view new work by Cameron and witness its physical impact in the flesh.
