Bill Culbert: Front Door Out Back
Library Shelf Location 18.CULB
Publication Date 2013
Description Published to accompany Aotearoa New Zealand's presentation at the 2013 Venice Biennale, Front Door Out Back by Bill Culbert. Culbert's transformation of ordinary and often discarded objects into an extraordinary 'otherness' is uplifting, quite literally so in the case of the suspended sculptures he has fashioned for La Pietà. Despite its sometimes cheerful air of improvisation, nothing in Culbert's practice is gratuitous. Combining light and things with rare economy, he produces art that is austere, poetic and challenging in the way it invites us to revalue familiar things and focus our perceptions.
