von ammon co is pleased to present MENTAL, a solo exhibition by New York based artist Tabor Robak. The show will run from 06 April - 25 May 2019. The gallery is located on Cady's Alley in Georgetown's historic district.
In his most experimental exhibition to date, Robak has created 10 new multimedia works which examine the human mind in conflict with technology. Through a rigorous hands-on fabrication process using metal, wood, electronics, light, paint, vinyl, plexiglass, video, and code, he transplants his virtual object-images into physical space. Works in MENTAL include sculptural video installations, neon multi-media assemblages, and hanging LED screens that display the animated text output of a neural network programed to generate messages about mental health.
This is Robak’s sixth solo show. He has been featured extensively in group exhibitions at galleries and institutions both stateside and abroad including Serpentine Galleries, London; MoMA: PS1, New York; Kunsthalle Düsseldorf; Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. His work is included in numerous public collections, including those of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art, Athens; Migros Museum, Zurich; The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
