David Robilliard: The Yes No Quality Of Dreams

David Robilliard: The Yes No Quality Of Dreams
Library Shelf Location 18.ROBI
Publication Date 2014

Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at ICA London, this book comprises a selection of paintings by London-based poet and painter David Robilliard, whose work reflects an image synonymous with the queer subculture of 1980s London. Combining figurative elements with text taken from his own poems, his paintings employ coded language, wry wit and a melancholic tinge to impart narratives of passing infatuations, sexual encounters and life’s tragedy, as the spectre of HIV looms towards the end of his life. Besides installation views and reproductions of numerous artworks, the book includes a CD of Robilliard reading his poems in 1987.
