Several beautiful angles

Nina Gilbert


09 June 2018–30 June 2018

Opening Friday 8 June 2018

The series of images presented in this exhibition have been made in parallel to an enquiry into the work of French novelist and writer Alain Robbe-Grillet. Associated with the Nouveau Roman trend, the ‘scenes’ or settings in Robbe-Grillet’s novels are traced by a literal excess of points of view, fragmented visibilities, perspectives, descriptions, and repetitions. The method employed by Robbe-Grillet, whereby his shifting position takes on hallucinatory characteristics reflects an inability to reach total and complete perspective. Presented in a series of images and excerpts from Robbe-Grillet’s novels Jealousy and In the Labyrinth the exhibition pursues the artist’s broader enquiry into the limitations of the photographic medium.
