Robbie Coleman & Jo Hodges
Robbie Coleman and Jo Hodges’ current practice focuses on explorations of the human relationship to environment and examinations of the complexities of place within an ecological and philosophical framework of global challenges and their local consequences.
Jointly, their work is multi-disciplinary and of a temporary nature, combining forms such as performance, projected imagery, temporary installation and sound. They often create work by re-imagining and reinventing existing processes.
Their practice is context and not media specific, being led by a research-based response to the physical, human and cultural environs. They are interested in developing new strategies for creating work in the public space and in exploring new ways of engaging audiences.
Robbie is a visual artist and designer. He has created and collaborated on local, national and international arts projects in a variety of media including live art, sculpture, installation and film.
Jo has a background in Human Ecology community development and social justice. She has a diverse multi disciplinary practice, creating both permanent and temporary public works, site-specific interventions, time based pieces, exhibitions and performance. She has worked with The Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, The National Museum of Scotland and The National Portrait Gallery in London.
