A Clean Line That Starts From The Shoulder
19 November 2015 – 28 February 2016, M Museum, Leuven, Belgium
Together with Playground, Museum M presents 'A clean line that starts from the shoulder', a solo exhibition by Jimmy Robert (1975, Guadeloupe). Identity, movement and the vulnerability of the body are central themes in Robert’s collages, photos and installations. In his practice, he often explores the work of other artists or engages in collaborations.
In his exhibition at M, he questions the different ways that lines and movements can be interpreted. He starts from fine line drawings of naturally and elegantly moving androgynous Congolese by Romanian-Belgian artist Idel Ianchelevici. Robert associates these drawings with two videos by the Belgian artist Lili Dujourie, which are also part of the exhibition and in which themes such as movement and androgyny return. In A clean line that starts from the shoulder, Robert presents new prints based on collages and an installation with fragile materials such as silk and paper.
The exhibition opens at 7pm with a performance in the exhibition rooms. Jimmy Robert’s new performance marks the opening of Playground and his exhibition. Along with a female performer, Robert will guide the audience through the works in his show with movement and text.
