Under the Wrong Star-films exploring the emotional mechanics of popular media
Title: Under the Wrong Star
Artist: Michael Robinson
Where : Royal Hibernian Academy 15 Ely Place, Dublin 2
When: Friday 22 November 2019 – Sunday 26 January 2020
Details:Blending original and found materials, Michael Robinson creates collaged films exploring the emotional mechanics of popular media, the nature of heartache, and the instability of the reality we inhabit. Riding the line between nostalgia and contempt, these works invoke a queer balancing of dark humour and bald sentiment – indulging the seductions of dramatic formulas and aesthetic excess amidst heavy doses of manipulation, abstraction, and damnation.
