Bill Culbert: Slow Wonder
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Bill Culbert | Slow Wonder, this book traces the enduring influence of the camera obscura (dark chamber) on New Zealand artist Bill Culbert’s sculpture and photography. Two essays – by Curator, New Zealand art Julia Waite and Associate Professor Justin Clemens – discuss the themes and concerns in Culbert’s practice, linking his work to the ideas of New Zealand and international art educationalists and philosophers, including James Coe, Maurice de Sausmarez, Martin Heidegger and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. A generous plate section illustrates key works in the exhibition, including two installations never before presented in New Zealand.
