Robin Hungerford

IMA at Ksubi

15 December–22 January 201115 Dec–22 Jan 2011

In his three Like a Hole in the Head videos, young Sydney artist Robin Hungerford dons big papier-mache pinata heads, which he attacks with hammers, knives, electric drills, and hedge clippers, pulling out brains, blood, and viscera until nothing’s left. Like a Hole in the Head is hysterical, simultaneously engaging us in its sadism and its pathos. Self-harm has never been so much fun.

The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
