This new body of work draws on an ongoing series of balloon inspired sculptures featured in Oooh (2013), with balloons that droop and slump as the force of gravity appears to bear down upon them. The new works continue Robinson’s inquiry into sculptural presence, materiality and conditions of audience reception and include a new series of rope sculptures, experiments in an uncanny realism that unfurl fluidly against the floor, yet rise up vertically challenging the physical laws to which they are subjected. Large balloon sculptures combine a form of proto-engineering with weird yet wonderful studies in comparative materiality.
