  • Biography
Robert McCormacks practice explores the fleshy innards of normative behaviours from the inside out. Performance generates objects that drive installations. Installation falls back into performance. With a particular investment in childhood and play things, the work investigates the child as an autonomous figure. Work can be seen on Instagram @robertmccormack_
