Overview

This limited-edition volume of 1,000 copies accompanies South African artist Robin Rhode's first solo survey exhibition at a U.S. museum, Ohio's Wexner Center. Raised in Cape Town and Johannesburg, Rhode has gained recognition with his playful photography, video and installation works that often reference graffiti culture and combine drawing and performance. Rhode's focus is on the tensions between the liberating energies of the individual's imagination and the confines of media-driven stereotypes and received conceptions of identity. Catch Air features 12 of Rhode's signature photographic sequences related to his drawing/performances, several digital animations, films, videos and an installation of sculptural objects. It also contains eight foldout pages that fully document selected works, including the complete nearly 200-image sequence "Color Chart" (2004- 2006), and a lengthy interview between Robin Rhode and Catharina Manchanda, Wexner Center Senior Curator of Exhibitions.
