Robin Rhode – Having Been There

Having Been There, the first exhibition from Robin Rhode in Hong Kong is now open at Lehmann Maupin.

Robin Rhode - Having Been There  (1)

Robin Rhode - Having Been There  (2)

From the press release:

The exhibition title is a reference to a quotation of cultural theorist Roland Barthes who wrote, referencing the depiction of photographic subjects, “photography set up, not a perception of the being there of an object…but a perception of its having been there.” Rhode’s photographs, in which he increasingly appears, though often in disguise, explore this idea further. By inserting himself into the photographic image and through his mark making, Rhode creates records and traces of “having been there.”
