Billy Apple

Since its permanent installation and acquisition for the Govett-Brewster Collection in 1980 Billy Apple’s Altered Staircase has been ‘re-altered’ on two occasions linked to renovations and changes of the Govett-Brewster’s architecture.

This exhibition completes its most recent, and third, iteration affected by the construction of the Len Lye Centre and the relocation of the Govett-Brewster’s principal portal (and point of entrance and egress) that was a crucial element of the original work.

Working with long-time collaborator Wystan Curnow, the artist has produced a display about its history, updated the graphic and textual elements of the work, and re-contextualised the work for the future.
