Robert Cervera


Robert Cervera’s work explores materiality and our relationship with it. The one-to-one physical encounter between our body and the work is paired with a reassessment of the nature and behaviour of the materials used, which seem to defy their assumed roles and taxonomies. A recurring interest is the dialogue between the molecular and the molar: formlessness and flow entering a dialogue with form, structure and systems. Recent sculptural work uses photographic images of scratches on human skin, reservoirs and dams to cast concrete columns and other forms, which absorb the colour and detail of the image from which they are cast. Robert Cervera graduated from the RCA in 2014, he lives and works in London.
