Jimmy Robert & Saskia de Keyser & Emma Hedditch & Ian White, “La musique dans la chambre“, 9 April 2010, 7 p.m., performance evening, NUMBER THREE: HERE AND NOW, JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION, Duesseldorf
Born in French Guadeloupe, Jimmy Robert works with diverse media including photography, collages, objects, art books, short films and performance art. In his explorations into the relationship between images and objects, Robert draws attention to the dynamics of different surfaces. Questions of identity and its representation are his main interest, and he uses a variety of references to literature, art and music to emphasise the fragility of the materials he uses.
Together with his longtime partners and friends Emma Hedditch and Ian White, Jimmy Robert developed a new work for NUMBER THREE: HERE AND NOW with the title “La musique dans la chambre“. Jimmy Robert describes it this way: "The context of the Julia Stoschek exhibition space will be transformed for one night only into a more intimate curtained chamber where the audience will be guided from one work to the other. For this night I would like to concentrate on the ideas of performance, its deferral, the voice precisely, as a form of disembodied performance, opening up a discursive space for our sonorous intimacies and perhaps also exploring absence and its economy."
Emma Hedditch, “Scarcity, From Horizontal To Vertical And Back Again“, video documentation by Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy of a performance by Emma Hedditch, 18 September 2008, at the Musée de Montmartre, Paris. A cooly passionate meditation on modern life and its complexities.
Ian White, “Democracy“, 2009, live performance with radio and powerpoint presentation. A romantic exploration of the power structures that surround us and our position in relation to them.
Jimmy Robert, “Consensus rouge noir“, 2010, a 16mm film with a live text reading by Saskia de Keyser. A form of abstract yet figurative essay on film and its consequences on desire.
