Artist Page

Zoë Marni Robertson synthesises writing and painting, disparate research and personal connections into a lived experience of the political. Materials are gathered out of waste (small attempts at sustainability). Where waste is unavoidable and other ethical concerns (such as the exploitation of labour) are inherent in the process (the machines/tools and materials), these preoccupations are addressed.
