Andrew Roberts (b. 1995, Tijuana) incorporates elements from gameplay, roleplay and worldbuilding into his multi-platform practice, recognizing in these mechanisms a cultural structure where consumption and production become one. Exploring the material dimension of horror, Roberts’ digital animations, installations, sculptures and poetry treat colonial agents as possessed images and haunted spaces. He is primarily concerned with representational systems and the geographical tensions between Mexico and the United States of America.
