Robin Hungerford’s amorphous and enigmatic video works allude to a kind of blossoming biology which may be the result of increasingly sophisticated genetic interventions or perhaps even their unexpected side effects. Meanwhile colourful, mixed media constructions, encrusted in simulated plant growth, take on a life of their own; thriving like weeds on the fuzzy boundary which separates the synthetic from the organic and hint at the new plasticity of life as we know it.
Robin Hungerford is a Sydney based artist who completed Honours at the University of Western Sydney in 2006 and graduated with Masters from the Sydney College of the Arts in 2009. He was a finalist in the Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship 2010. His work has been shown in several artist run spaces and this is his first show at Gallery 9.
