Robyn Woolston

Installation. Film. Photography

Woolston takes an interdisciplinary approach to her output by creating bespoke interventions to creative commissions.  Although working predominantly within Installation and Lens-Based approaches, her practice also covers documentary, artist book works, print and assemblage.

In a series of Interventions, Installations and social commentary spread over the course of two years and two International visits (Sinai, Egypt and Linz, Austria); ‘Death Becomes Her’ exists as a meditation on the emergent growth of fecundity at a point of arid existence.
Borne from a discussion surrounding mortality, memorial and regeneration and developing into 2010 with an International research retreat, my work is currently concerned with the ultimate of consuming forces that commands and construes our life – the birth that follows death.

She has worked with organisations, and collectives, as diverse as HMP Prison Service, BBC, Intel, ITV, Mitsubishi, Birmingham City Council, London Print Studio, Novas Contemporary Urban Centre and the Williamson Art Gallery.

 

Woolston intervenes within supply chains, re-appropriating product, meaning and metaphor. Located somewhere between Process and Povera, she presents a ‘rhizomatic’ assault on systems that place financial ‘profit’ above societal ‘value’ in a world defined by ‘finite’ resources.

By focusing upon situational dynamics she creates installations that question, or illuminate, hypermodernity’s propensity toward soulless homogeneity. The nature of the personal and the public, the geo-political and local is brought into question when the motives of the machine are revealed in correlation to the autonomy of the individual.

…Ultimately, she states“There is no ‘other’ place, space or location for waste, uncomfortable emotions or culturally unpalatable ‘events. Everything exists, only some things don’t last.”
