Robert Zant (b. 1988, Orange, California) explores the ways in which singular events get translated into representations that subsequently travel, shift, and morph. Using the practice of drawing as a starting point, his work merges the seemingly disparate formats of newspaper and personal diary (both translate to diario in Spanish). What gets produced when the investigative qualities of a reporter are placed in tension with an intimate poetics?
Robert has participated in exhibitions and art book fairs in Argentina, Chile, and the U.S.
