Robert Henke – Fragile Territories

What defines a territory? Where does a line start and end? Who occupies which space and when? How do we negotiate and navigate a shared space? Fragile Territories uses four lasers, each contributing to a complex and mutating visual shape, overlapping lines, rigid grids or loose shortcuts – apt at this time in history when we are negotiating how to find a new social normal. The artist Robert Henke, based in Berlin, first exhibited at The Lowry in 2015/16 as part of our digital art exhibition RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW. Henke is a formidable innovator and artist in the music and sound industry, with his visual art installations capturing the complex intricacy and beauty he is known for internationally in the music field.
