Culture 24 October 2011 Cultural Capital podcast: Jo Robertson An interview with the east London-based artist and musician. Print HTML In the fourth episode of Newstatesman.com's Cultural Capital podcast, I talk to Jo Robertson, who is currently exhibiting in "Four Rooms" at the Centrum Sztuki Współczesnej na Zamku Ujazdowski in Warsaw. According to Tracey Emin, "Joanne has the ability to tap into things on an emotional and psychic level. Her works have an edge and a complexity but there is nothing cynical in them." In 2008, the Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Creed put her forward for the Creative 30 award, saying: "She wears her heart on her sleeve and paints and sings directly from it. She's a natural. I would like to be more like her." We talk about the influence of grunge on her work, improvisation and her creative process.
