Nicolas Robin does not look at the Internet; he thoroughly breaks it up by observation. This artist experiments the net with the attitude of a person who learns a foreign language. However, time going by, he tries to invent a new grammar, a suitable syntax that should exceed the insipidness, the noise of the chatter and the visual exchanges.
Between the archaeologist and the surgeon, he opens, cuts, sizes, scrapes the surface of the data-flows to detect its basic life matter, its obsessions, and he tries to connect one after the other the elements often scattered, in decompositions and heterogeneous entities.
This performance can be seen as a kind of invitation to build step by step, prudently his language. It can also be analysed as an attempt to stitch together the one (the presence of the invited woman) and the other (an image collected during his former navigations) in the moment of the connection. There was, there is, and this performance will undoubtedly give its place to a there will be…
(Cyril Thomas, 1-2009)

Nicolas Robin is an artist, an assembler, who lives in Brussels and elsewhere. His works are anchored in a research on intimacy and communication altered by the use of Internet. At the border of absence and presence he explores in data-flows and surfaces even the most negligible contradictions.
