A SENSE OF PLACE  This was Robb’s first major solo exhibition that took place in the Engine Room gallery in 2001. The works were a response to the changes experienced through the urban regeneration of East Belfast the artist had lived for 17 years.  Changes  needed to happen as Belfast was moving into a new era, but it was the overwhelming  sense of loss  experiences when streets were ripped down and were literally torn apart. Robb captured  the various element of destruction, remains, loss experienced by the community She also want to highlight issues around the politic decisions and ramifications of some members from this community  community being forced to move to new dwellings and the impact that has on a changing city such as Belfast.

Robb made several large-scale installations in the gallery space that gave a graveyard feel to the hanging transparent sculptures that contained  images of the transitional change. the images  were either screen printed or projected onto the sculptures.

Robb also made a series of photographic images in collaboration with photographer George Robb.
