Rosanne Robertson is an artist and co-founder of Dyke|Queer contemporary art project The Penthouse. Working with performance, sculpture, assemblage,
drawing and sound she explores tensions, anxieties and relationships between body, object and environment. Human psychology implicated in improvisation and assemblage underpins works anthropomorphic in
appearance as an exploration into the unconscious given form. Otherness,Queerness, disruption and the construction of self are main concerns explored
in opposition to inhumane dominant structures.
