Robin Rhode is a South African artist, born in Cape Townbut now based in Berlin, Germany. His work brings aspects of performance, happening, drawing, film and photography together to register the traces of poverty and social inequality in the world. Has teamed up with leading Norwegian composer and most respected modern-day classical pianistn, Leif ove Andsnes.
Together they are working on Pictures Reframed, a concert which is currently on tour. Is described to be a “wild narrative for a person walking into an exhibition and he crashes into the first picture and is faced with various strong images and textures. Later in the cycle he becomes a part of the picture and it takes on so many aspects. It’s psychologically challenging.”
