Robots was created to accompany Modern Art Oxford’s 2015 exhibition of Kiki Kogelnik’s work, Fly Me to the Moon, the first solo exhibition of her work in the UK.
Working in New York in the 1960s, Kogelnik was a well known artist and contemporary of figures such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. Despite her early popularity, Kogelnik’s work was often overlooked by institutions and slowly written out of the history of post-war Western art.
Kogelnik was working in a time of dramatic change – the Cold War was at its height, fears of nuclear annihilation were growing and man was beginning to explore space travel. This edition, which was produced courtesy of the Kiki Kogelnik Foundation, reflects Kogelnik’s fascination with space travel and futuristic technologies; in the image several mysterious hands can be seen taking apart the body of a robot.
