Alexander Korzer-Robinson

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Alexander Korzer-Robinson’s work has a definite wow factor – and it’s a WOW that gets bigger the more you learn about the intricate process behind his craft. This bad-boy must have patience like an ancient astronomer waiting for planetary alignment – he makes each diorama by going through an illustrated text, page by page, cutting away the bits he doesn’t want and keeping the bits he does. Close the book back up and you’re left with this, each volume retaining its unique narrative character while being transformed into something wholly, wonderfully different. Korzer-Robinson is part of the upcoming Other Nature exhibition at Antlers.
