„What remains“, could be the question of the silkscreen print by Robin Rhode. The manifestation of a gesture – the pouring into a wine glass – sprawls here through three medial layers. As in many of his socially critical works, Rhode starts with a charcoal draft, which is then being extended into the space by using props and live action. First, the photography of a wine bottle and the drawing of two glasses dominate the sheet. Only the wine stains on paper give us an idea of the last step of the performance – pouring wine into the drawn glasses. The gesture seems to sway between blatant spillage and extravagant casting. Questions, that address the traces of social gestures and their permanence in media, fictitious and real spaces become relevant. What remains, are the silkscreen of a drawing and wine bottle, as well as the traces of the wine on paper. The edition was developed as part of the exhibition BEHIND THE SCREEN.
