“Isn’t it funny how sense has no schedule.” – Robin Love, Attention is a task we share: Thesis Presentation (2019)

Attention is a task we share consists of three video works by Nogojiwanong / Peterborough based artist Robin Love, all created during her BFA at OCAD University. In these works, Love carves out space for moments of not knowing. Her performances resist the audience’s desire for a satisfying instant of completion and bring to light how process, with all of its pauses, failures, improvisations, and revelations, can yield delightful and insightful moments of discovery.
