In his art, Jimmy Robert raises questions of representation, gender, and identity—often with a starting point in an artistic or museum context. With subtle humor, melancholy, and queerness, he takes on these complex subjects through a fragmented and flexible idiom. The works, in which even the body can become a conceptual tool, are allowed to function both as independent entities and as components of a larger historical network. In spite of the body’s constant presence, the direct gaze is often avoided—possibly as a gesture of preserved control.
Curator: Andreas Nilsson
