Keep an Eye on the world - Tehos - Ruben Robierb exhibition - Avenue des arts - Hong Kong
September 2, 2014
On the anniversary of the collapse of the World Trade Center, Avenue des Arts inaugurates an exhibition asking questions on the world of the 21st century. In recent years, the world has vacillated between crises, crashes, regime dismantling and innovation, pleasure, excessive consumption; between euphoria and dismay. The objects supposed to satisfy our desires have enslaved us in the end. From medicine to mobile phones, everything has taken an addictive turn.

Brazilian made, fine-arts photographer...south American / Miami style with New York edge. As an Artist, Robierb focuses on the contemporary society, making emphasis in the sociocultural issues that define our current times. He also focuses in the human figure, and the different aspects that reveal the human body language. His approach to photography is rather edgy, political, ironic and critical, and for that very reason, quite motivating. Robierb is keen on photographing all sorts of people, objects and scenes around the world with its different shapes and ethnicities. He intertwines images in a critical way giving his personal vision of our contemporary world. Sometimes, his work are very minimal, eliminating all superfluous details; other times his photographs mix in a kind of collage, as a result of the combining his own images to explosive colors and external subjects. He defines his photographs as SHARP and BOLD, but they are rather provocative and disturbing, conforming an ironic statement mixed with a harmonic beauty. PRESS RELEASE SEPTEMBER 3TH, 2014
