ROBIN RHODE – a plan of the soul – Zurich Art Prize 2018 – curated by Sabine Schaschl – Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich – – 25 October 2018 to 13 January 2019 – Opening, Award ceremony & Performance: Wed 24 October 2018, 6 pm .

Museum Haus Konstruktiv and Zurich Insurance Group Ltd presents the eleventh winner of the internationally renowned Zurich Art Prize: in 2018, this art prize goes to Robin Rhode (b. 1976 in Cape Town, lives in Berlin).

Robin Rhode, born in 1976 in Cape Town, has a firm footing in the international art scene. He began his career as an artist in 2003 by participating in the exhibition How Latitudes Become Forms at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Since then, his oeuvre has been characterized by a masterful combination of street art, painting, performance, film, photography and, most recently, sculpture, whereby the medium of drawing often forms the basis. For over fifteen years, Rhode has been living in Berlin, where he develops his art in an abandoned industrial building. Nevertheless, the history and current situation of his home country South Africa still play an important role. He frequently travels to Johannesburg, to immerse himself in the South African way of life. The streets and neighborhoods there offer him optimal conditions in which to implement ideas for his photographic works.

In his exhibition a plan of the soul, Robin Rhode presents various works that he has specially conceived or adapted for Museum Haus Konstruktiv. In a performance that Rhode will present at the opening of his exhibition, he draws while floating above the floor on a rope, using various individual car parts that are attached to a second rope. After this spectacular act, there remain the masterful drawings on the wall, as well as the drawing tools hanging from the ceiling.
