Nicolás Robbio

Why lamps, sand, spheres, wires, apples or scales? Nicolás Robbio’s work often uses elements such as these, which the artist describes as objects of general knowledge. The things that appear throughout his work are precisely no more and no less than generally recognizable things. Just as the meaning contained within this cipher, ‘thing’, may be overlooked by habit in language, the specific resonance of the everyday thing itself is often hidden from view, disguised by its application as a practical, usable object.
