Robin Rhode's debut exhibition at our Hong Kong gallery is now open to the public and will be on view through November 1st: http://bit.ly/havingbeenthereThe exhibition’s title, having been there, is a reference to a quotation of cultural theorist Roland Barthes who wrote, referencing the depiction of photographic subjects, “photography set up, not a perception of the being there of an object…but a perception of its having been there.” Rhode’s photographs, in which he increasingly appears, though often in disguise, explore this idea further. By inserting himself into the photographic image and through his mark making, Rhode creates records and traces of “having been there.”

“WE ARE ALL A LITTLE FUCKED UP. AND LIFE’S A LITTLE FUCKED UP. AND WHEN WE FIND SOMEONE WHOSE FUCKED-UP-NESS IS COMPATIBLE WITH OURS, WE JOIN UP WITH THEM AND FALL IN MUTUAL FUCKED-UP-NESS AND CALL IT LOVE.”

carmenbass:

Unconditional love really exists in each of us.
It is part of our deep inner being.
It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being.
It’s not ‘I love you’ for this or that reason,
not ‘I love you if you love me.
It’s love for no reason, love without an object.
Ram Dass
