To the Ground

To The Ground; a solo exhibition by artist Rosanne Robertson - winner of an AIR Gallery Platform Bursary award sponsored by Arts Council England.

Conscious and unconscious explorations of the idea of Ground are presented via representational and abstract forms. Connections within the material and immaterial mind are extended via appendages and crutches which connect us psychologically and physically to the ground. Moments that are rooted and up rooted exist at the same time celebrating constant flux- joined together and exposed in opposition to the idea of an opaque and rigid dominant structure.

Female form is handled by the female hands, instincts and gaze of the artist- reclaiming power taken away by an overarching patriarchal and homophobic society that fears true exploration of female power and sexuality.

ReModel at The Art House


Collaborator Space, The Art House (Wakefield). 

is an exhibition by artist Rosanne Robertson following a research and development project exploring through practice and collaboration the idea of power at the margins. A central focus will be a personal project by Rosanne Robertson exploring mental health and societal structures- producing a new body of assembled sculpture, drawings, sound and performance works. Rosanne will focus of the relationship between mind, body and environment in works that celebrate the moment as the site for change and remodelling. Rosanne imagines the physicality of the site for change and how it involves the body- destruction of the past, embodying resistance to dominant structures and renewal.


Starting points involve automatic drawings that embody the mutilation of Queer female identity considered deviant in over riding patriarchal capitalistic system that rely on rigid and binary understandings of gender and sexuality. A homophobic and rigid society can lead to a deep distrust and hatred of our own selves, bodies and variations. During research and collaborations Rosanne considers the psychological effect of being at odds with the system and societal structures which oppress based on sexuality, gender, class, ability and race. Assemblage and sculpture is explored as a medium in relation to building new meaning and making new connections piece by piece. An alternative Queer Herstory of Assemblage Art, the female+Queer+non-binary body and the Queer female gaze in art will be researched as part of this project.

This projected is supported using public funding by Arts Council England. Rosanne Robertson is supported by The Art House during this project as a bursary studio holder.

The exhibition opening is part of The Wakefield Art Walk.
