Disobedience I

Disobedience I, Ceramic, Wood, Paper, String, Enamel, Variable installation and dimensions 36 x 48 x 28”, 2011

This small riot of wads of clay impressed within my clenched fist, and composed in a mania of miniature baracades, banners and pickets as well as the various small porcelain trophies plates and tokens are mementos, absurd playthings derived from an investigation of Jean Marat and Erich Fromm's meditation "On Disobedience."

Disobedience I and a selection of ceramic objects was in the exhibition "Disobedience" at
Anna Kustera Gallery
, www.annakustera.com
"Robinson contributes a universal, miniature activism “kit” that is actively staged in the window
gallery as well as several peculiar ceramic trophies which seem to celebrate
less-than-momentous events or accomplishments. Derived from his investigation of Jean Marat
and Erich Fromm’s meditation “On Disobedience,” the mixed media sculpture presents placards
that are blank but nonetheless convey urgency and indignant passions. The protestors
themselves are formed from impressions of clay clenched in the artist's fist, effectively
embodying a collective, largely suppressed discontent." - Press Release (pdf)
