Michael Robinson - The Retrospective
November 8 from 20:00
Michael Robinson: The Dark, Krystle (excerpt)
As part of screenings at Valletta Contemporary Gallery, Kinemastik has a rare privilege to present the works of Michael Robinson, whose couple of short films could have been seen at Kinemastik Short Film Festival over the past.
Michael Robinson (b.1981) is a film and video artist whose work explores the joys and dangers of mediated experience. Borrowing the formal skins of structural film, the emotional cues of pop songs and employing a woozy toggling of public and personal memory, his work strives to cultivate new resonances between seemingly disparate elements, harnessing the surface connotations of specific landscapes, television shows, texts, songs and sounds as psychological triggers, ripe for reconfiguration.
