“Artist Rosanne Robertson’s very much a ‘doodlebug’, that is to say, a provocateur who tirelessly works across all platforms, creating work by any medium necessary and who works beneath the skin,” -Doodlebug for Pick of the City’s Emerging Ones

“The very nature of the outsider is questioned…”

Corridor 8: OutsiderXchanges Overview 

“I recently attended one of the best art events I’ve been to in a very long time…”

Description:

Two body’s of work meet and invite the viewer/listener to take their place between the two artists to complete the conversation. The conversation is brought together in various parts- via written word, object, video and sound. The conversation is not straight forward but rather layered and repeated over time mirroring the process of working together and understanding how we relate to each other over time.

Appendage & Bond

Appendage & Bond

2016

Performance & Sculpture (found metal, cotton, nylon, hair, skin, flesh, bone, plastic).

Appendage & Bond is a sculptural work activated and reworked by the body in performance with  an arrangement  of acoustic sound making. Produced as part of research and development project Too Much focusing in on the modern condition of anxiety and combining materials and sculptural arrangements that depict raw and open parts of the body- clothed and unclothed- this work magnifies abstracted bodily sections as if to look for the small intricate fear  hidden within small spaces of the body.

This video documenting the work was filmed and edited by Sophie Broadgate.

Appendage & Bond was installed and performed at Manchester Art Gallery for Wonder Women festival in celebration of International Women’s Day 2106 for What is She Wearing? event curated by Instigate Arts.

 

Too Much project is supported by Arts Council England- Grants for the Arts
