Change Room

Robert Waters is a Canadian artist who lives in Spain and whose work often centres around the concepts of transformation and evolution. 'Change Room' is an installation that transforms The Container's small gallery space into, literally, a changing room through collage, silkscreen, drawings and sculpture. In the last decade, one of the central themes in Waters’ work has been the human body, or more specifically, its limitations. His work often recalls physical and psychological instinctive impulses we attempt to suppress, such as lust, violence, the vulnerability of masculinity, and gender, all whilst examining the body as a 'machine'. In 'Change Room', Waters investigates the disconnection between the physical/biological limitations of the body and the psychological and intellectual properties of humans, in particular the male body and ideas of masculinity – its aesthetics, its function and its social standing
