A dog named Robót
Roman Cochet's "A dog named Robòt" opens this Friday, January 11, at Alexander and Bonin. The artist's first exhibition at the gallery takes its title from the animal who first discovered the prehistoric Lascaux cave paintings: a dog whose name was Robòt. Cochet takes a similar temporal leap in his work, albeit into a posthuman future, as he maps a series of contingent realities devoid of the human subject. The exhibition includes recent paintings and drawings as well as a collaborative work between Roman Cochet and his brother, Malo Cochet, which will be projected in the video gallery.
