Curatorial Art Practice in London

The artist filmed on the eve of his exhibition Back Light

 
Three days before opening his Back Light micro-retrospective at the gallery, Bill arrived with a few fruits cases from the market, and started to unload. Light bulbs, neons, boxes, plastic bottles, it looked a bit like junk; most of it has been collected from a rubbish dump anyway (‘la décharge’).  It took two days of assembling to make it mushroom into a splendid exhibition.  Subtle, yet radical, serious and pure fun, singular, universal, Culbert is not only a grand man of dada and concrete art, with 3 countries claiming him as their own, (Britain where he became prominent as soon as out of the RCA in the 60’s; France because he also partly lives there and received great curatorial and museum attention from the 80’s until today; and New Zealand where he came back as a prodigal son and leading artist after 20 years of absence). He is also an influential creator to many artists of later generations. Spot it on this video: a show in a 70 square meter space that recalls in mini scale 50 years of works.
