Andrea Roberts | Suffer Any Wrong
2015 | Serigraph | 15 x 22”
The overlapping text in Andrea Roberts’ serigraph creates a dense warning. Charles Dickens’s words on the Court of Chancery “Suffer any wrong that can be done you rather than come here” is obscured and magnified as it repeats in black, cyan, magenta, and yellow.
Andrea Roberts is a Winnipeg based multimedia artist whose research-based art practice incorporates sound, sculpture, text and installation. Roberts’s work combines materials in unexpected ways, experiments with frequency as socio-political material, and often takes up large-scale texts that are printed, laser cut or otherwise applied to a range of materials. Roberts holds an MFA in sculpture from California College of the Arts, San Francisco and a BFA Honours in sculpture from the University of Manitoba’s School of Art, Winnipeg. Roberts’ work has been exhibited internationally in both solo and group exhibitions including recent shows at TRUCK Contemporary Art (Calgary), Oakland University Art Gallery (Detroit), CT International Print Bienalle (Santiago de Cuba), Send & Receive Festival of Sound Art (Winnipeg), aceartinc (Winnipeg) and Plug In ICA (Winnipeg). Roberts is to be included in the forthcoming exhibition Binary Conflict, investigating relationships between new media arts and electronic music at Ars Techne in Krakow, Poland. A founding member of the feminist artist collective ngtvspc, Roberts also performs as VOR, a solo noise project and was a summer 2016 artist in residence at Brooklyn’s Pioneer Works Center for Art and Innovation. Roberts is a recipient of a Murphy Cadogan Contemporary Arts Fellowship, Manitoba Arts Council Creation Production Grants, and Winnipeg Arts Council Individual Art Grants.
