Robin Rhode won the Zurich Art Prize with a solo exhibition at Haus Konstruktiv. For Rhode, who was born in Cape Town in 1976 , the medium of drawing is not limited to an image carrier, but is instead a technique that he uses to trigger a performance-based process – in the public space, as well as on the walls of museums and galleries. Be it choreographed or improvised, Rhode understands drawing to be something interwoven with space and context, which is ultimately recorded in the form of photo sequences, videos or objects. His latest works contain references to Modernism, play with the vocabulary of Constructivism and incorporate notions from colour theory. The Zurich Art Prize jury expressed enthusiasm about Rhode’s handling of Constructivist borrowings, which he can implement with relish in response to space and context. His practice of integrating the audience was also highlighted as outstanding.
