Robbie Rowlands Manipulates Space with Environmental Installations

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Australian artist Robbie Rowlands isn’t afraid to take ownership of his environment with his large-scale public works. The artist bends, cuts, twists and unravels mundane objects — from pianos to basketball poles to street signs — pushing the physical parameters that define the ways we operate in public and private spaces. By lifting some of the confines of his viewers’ everyday milieus, he provokes us to think about possibilities that defy practical necessities. Take a look at some of Rowlands’s recent installations below.
