Working more as facilitator or restorer than artist, ROBIN COLLYER produces sculptural and photographic works through processes that eschew formal and compositional criteria. Through avoiding conventional means of production, Collyer facilitates “as-is” or “fixed-up” objects in unexpected ways.
A few opening remarks*
[…]Each, insofar as it stands forth, is marked by what it is not, internally spaced out so that if one were to superpose one case onto the other, each unit would see itself imposed upon by this lackits doppelganger as you put it. The actual space between the units that Collyer emphasizes by cropping and the addition of the symbol becomes the representative of their having been re-marked.[…]
