Robert Richardson – Exercising My Walk
During the first lockdown in the UK, Biennale Austria member Robert Richardson produced three related digital artworks under the title Exercising My Walk. They incorporate photographs of trees and branches taken on his daily exercise walk. They are in saturated colour and combined with abstracted windows, doors and blinds, which are presented as the lockdown barriers to greater access to the natural world. The artworks articulate lockdown restrictions through the freedom of an imaginative space.
