Fresh from shows at Saatchi’s ‘Other Art Fair’ and the legendary Pikes hotel in Ibiza, renowned Dj, record producer and artist Justin Robertson will be in Hastings for the weekend of 17th – 18th of August, to launch his art show “Gathering Atoms” which will be exhibited at Ruby’s Rooms until 29/09/19 and to play two DJ gigs at local venues

Known for his remix work for the likes of Bjork, Noel Gallagher, Justice and Paul Weller, and his chart-topping band Lionrock, Justin has had over thirty years’ experience at the forefront of electronic music. Restlessly innovative and strongly opposed to resting on his laurels, Justin defies labelling, his Dj sets take in the full spectrum of visceral jacking dance music, whilst his celebrated ‘Temple of Wonders’ radio show on Soho radio travels to the outer reaches of Dub, Afro Beat and Psychedelia on a monthly basis.

Specially curated for the Ruby Rooms, ‘Gathering Atoms’ is a selection of pieces from Justin’s last four collections; ‘The Explorer’s Chronicle, It’s Alive, ‘Alone’ and ‘Maps, Signs and Sigils’, the work covers a number of themes from the mythology of science, the consciousness of objects around us and how they direct us, to the power of the imagination, the pros and cons of isolation and the secret like of atoms.

There will be a launch party at Ruby Rooms on Saturday 17th August from 4pm to 9pm, where there will be a chance to see the art over cocktails and canapes. RSVP to rubyandnorm@gmail.com is essential.

Justin will also be venturing out to do a couple of DJ shows. On Saturday night he will be taking his dancefloor detonating blend of body jacking house and cosmic disco to The Fountain, (93 Queens Road, Hastings, TN34 1RL) from 10pm. Then on Sunday it’s a trip around the far corners of the musical universe at The Marina Fountain, (26 Caves Road, Saint Leonards, TN38 0BY), taking in dub, disco and the sounds of the universe from 2pm till 6pm. Entry is free to both events

‘The area is so alive with creative energy and has been for years, so it’s a great pleasure for me to be able to dip my toe in the current and get involved with this vibrant scene. Hopefully this weekend will just be the start of a happy relationship.’
Justin Robertson.

Ruby’s Rooms –

Ruby’s Rooms is an inspirational art & design led seafront guesthouse. Owned and designed by Kate Jaggers who has been curating content and spaces in the music, arts & youth sector for almost 20 years. With her deep family connections and love for this rich artistic and cultural pocket of the south coast she believes your place of rest should be as inspiring as your place to play. Working with locally sourced materials & furnishings and a team of east Sussex craftsmen she set upon restoring & modernising this magnificent 6 story Victorian house which now provides apartments & rooms for modern living serving the best locally produced food & drink. With design collaborations with creative talent ranging from tattoo artists to fashion labels each room offers a very unique experience. The ‘Gathering Atoms’ exhibition and collaboration with Justin Robertson is a major example of the ongoing ‘artist residencies’ at Ruby’s Rooms for all to enjoy.

It’s Alive! A new Exhibition of my artwork.

Justin Robertson_It's Alive_1080x1080-1

 

I’m very happy to have been asked to stage a new exhibition of my artwork at the Book Club in London. The show runs from April 26th until July 8th. This is the event page link.

https://www.facebook.com/events/2153356778280005/

and register for tickets here for the opening night.

https://thebookclub.eventcube.io/…/exhibition-launch-its-a…/

There will be various cultural and musical events during the exhibitions run.
So far confirmed are: an event with author of ‘ The Virtuous Cyborg’ Chris Bateman on the 8th May and an evening with respected music writer Joe Mugford (The Guardian, Dazed & Confused, FACT, Mixmag, Boiler Room) called ‘Future Selves: How is Technology Changing Who I Am?’ in July.
More to follow!

This is a little bit more about the show.

Continuing his exploration of various philosophical themes, his latest exhibition challenges the concept of the machine mind and our human desire for escapism through debatable notions of transcendence. It explores what it is to be human, what it is to be a conscious being and to what extent everything is ‘alive’

“We can outsource parcels of our consciousness into books, music, inventions or devices. These objects live on even after our biological frames have long decayed. We may not be identical to these objects, but nor are these objects the dead things we might think either. They are the receptacles of our wishes our desires and our beliefs. We imbue them with character, give them names, take their council, even worship them”
Justin Robertson

The works are rendered using a variety of techniques including pencil drawings, digital, oil
painting and photography. Some pieces incorporate all these techniques in a process that
leads from the simple to the complex, reflecting the pluralism and variety found in the
natural world, where an atom can be studied on its own, but can only be truly understood
as part of the whole.

Center For Peaceful Solutions Auction

I was very happy to be asked to contribute to the Centre for Peaceful Solutions Project, painting these amazing boxes made by inmates at Dartmoor Prison. I was in great company alongside Billy Childish, Nelly Dimitranova and Piers De Laszlo. The Auction was at St Martins and raised a very handsome sum for the charity.
