Art Rotterdam

Bettina Buck, Platzhalter, LP, 2010
ROKEBY presents an installation with Gideon Rubin and Bettina Buck at this years Art Rotterdam

Through vastly different practices and processes Bettina Buck and Gideon Rubin produce moments of uncertainty. Each is concerned with the instability of signification, material and their chosen medium; both explore the limits of form and deal with concealed narratives whilst asking the viewer for their active engagement.

The booth will contain new paintings by Rubin, including one of his largest scale works to date. Work by Buck includes Platzhalter, Protocol of a journey and meetings with 14 artists. The work consists of records of a series of conversations Buck had with artists in four cities during a three-week period. Having contacted each artist, they met and talked whilst Buck cast the corner of the studio she found herself in where most of the other artists thinking takes place. The cast was made with expanding foam that was left to fully expand and set, then cast in bronze.
