Rosanne Robertson (b. 1984) is an artist based in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. Her assembled sculptural works have been formed through a creative process of performance with the body, sounds and found objects. Through her practice Robertson sees Queerness as disruption, considered via assembled sculpture and against the idea of the totalitarian single ‘sculptural object’.
Robertson’s most recent body of work is hinged within identity politics and the intersection of queerness, environment and class; Female and Gender Queer form is handled by the female gender queer hands, instincts and gaze of the artist-reclaiming power. Recent exhibitions include Gallery 78, Reykjavik, The Curfew Tower, Cushendall, Northern Ireland and Charlie Smith, London.
Robertson’s work will be on display as a contemporary intervention within The Hepworth Wakefield’s display of work by Barbara Hepworth in gallery 3 throughout the festival.
Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 has an extensive engagement programme, working with schools, universities, communities and artists.
We are exploring sculpture with people of all ages, connecting them with the materials and processes used in making sculpture today and showing how sculpture can be found all around us.
