REBUILDING – CURRENT TRAILER 2013
MARCUS ROBINSON is an artist and filmmaker specializing in urban transformation and architecture. He graduated from Cambridge University in 1982 with a degree in Modern Languages. Since then his work has been shown in solo exhibitions around the world including at the Carrousel du Louve in Paris and the London Film Festival.
Marcus was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland. His father was a builder and as a child he spent many afternoons in the construction depot fascinated with the process of building and design. This inspiration has contributed to his career covering modern architecture and major construction and demolition projects around the world spanning more than thirty years.
His art is created using a wide range of media including photography, film, music and painting. Numerous books of his work have been published including Eye (Black Dog Publishing 2007), Home (Home Office Consortium 2006) and Les Miroirs du Temps (Hazan 1992) and he has contributed many special time-lapse sequences and stills for various films including Millions (Danny Boyle, 2004) and Wonderland (Revolution Films 1999). His film The Millennium Wheel was screened at the London Film Festival and on Channel Four on the eve of the new Millennium.
REBUILDING is Marcus Robinson’s current project. This is an art collection and theatrical documentary film bearing witness to and taking inspiration from the reconstruction of the World Trade Center in New York.
