Babette Robertson, detail from solo show ‘Footpath’, 2019
Footpath contains notions of ecological and social footprints; things that are left behind and mapped out, which also signify a continuing and endless investigation of subject, audience and self.
“My work is about a constant process of posing questions to myself – not like trying to etch a single moment, but rather embodying a continuing way of working and being. My works start with the body and with walking, exploring the paths that each of us are leaving on the earth.
I intend to disrupt anthropocentrism, to observe subtleties and to contemplate our place. To do so, I employ the act of walking as a passageway into deep thought and contemplation. Rather than walking toward apparent manifestations of human production, such as urban infrastructure and digital engineering, my decision is to walk away from those influences.”
