UGO 0.2 welcomes artist John Robinson, for the seventh and final curated digital project in the 2018-19 programme.  The commission Velázquez Variations investigated the complex, cinematic, multi-perspective painting Las Meninas [1656] by Diego Velázquez. In the performance [5.03.2019] Robinson drew upon the uncertain relationship between the figures depicted, artist and audience. Encouraging audience participation and documentation as he reworks and poses, capturing snapshots of an idiosyncratic retelling. Looped audio, mangled life size inked figures from Las Meninas, a single mirror and a temporary hanging system generate documentation for potential paintings to be developed by Robinson upon return to the studio.
