The final exhibition of the season, opening on April 22, showcases two 2009 graduates from AUT University’s Visual Arts department, Anthony Cribb and Agnes So.

Both Cribb and So create works that operate under tension. Cribb’s models, made out of earth, coal and wood, overload their supports, causing them to bow under the weight or balance precariously. So’s constructions, assembled out of everyday objects, operate through balance and counterweight and have the potential to collapse at any moment. While using two very different methods of construction both artists make the principals of physics the very basis of their work.

The 2010 Sculpture Season, at St Paul St Gallery Three, is an opportunity to experience the diversity of current sculptural practice in New Zealand. Over the course of the season new work from eleven artists; William Hsu, Kah Bee Chow, Clara Chon, Carol Lee-Honson, Tiffany Rewa Newrick, Diane Atkinson, Museum of True History (MOTH), Erica van Zon, Anthony Cribb, Agnes So and Nick Spratt, will presented in six two week long exhibitions.

Throughout the season the artists will connect with the idea of sculpture in many ways. Making works that range from hand laboured models and exquisitely crafted objects, to ephemeral performative actions such as trying to capture light, or define a sculptural space by filling it with movement; their works trace a trajectory between two trends in sculptural engagement, on one end the production of the sculptural object, and on the other, its de-materialisation

The artists present multiple possibilities for engaging with the world through sculpture. Accessing disciplines as diverse as history, sociology, philosophy, politics, botany, ecology and geology they use the process of research to expand the arena of their art. They meld this research with the personal gesture or action, through this stepping away from the academic connotations of research and accessing forms of communication predicated on the idiosyncratic experiment, the personal connection and the heroic task.
