Robbie Campbell (b. 1995, Crewe UK) lives and works in London, while currently undertaking MFA Sculpture at Slade School of Fine Art after graduating with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Photography from The Glasgow School of Art in 2017. His practice comprises of sculptural installations, video art, photography and poetry, The work deals with visual and verbal incongruence regurgitating and reassembling worn out phrases and dulling routines of suburban England into new abject forms. Common order becomes open for speculation, routines become disjointed, supermarkets become theatres of repulsion, violence and comedy, the stuttering voices of discontent and anxiety long subdued are whispered and amplified. The work disorientates the reader/viewer; senses become confused, bathetic or bitter, scenes become grotesque and unstable, the story becomes out of place and time and the voice of the narrator is ever changing. Among recent shows he’s exhibited; London Grads Now, Saatchi Gallery, London (2020); RSA New Contemporaries, Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh (2018); Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Block 336, London and BALTIC 39, Gateshead (2018-2017).
