Blue Oyster Gallery, Dunedin
August 30 – September 9, 2000
Tall structures stand in a plastic grove, emulating the steel columns of the gallery. Assembled from stacks of modular white plastic stools, the pillars recall Brancusi’s Endless Column. Cubic glass display shelving clings to corners of the room, one structure throwing an architectural red shadow. In a corner a clump of small folded pvc sculptures with fluffy orange mitochondria swarm. A dry modernist fountain of glowing polystyrene boxes obstructs the path to the gallery office. Along one wall a long sheet of textured plastic foam forms a squashy pixellated horizon.
