Making Time

7 Apr — 14 May 2022

Making Time is a solo presentation of work by Ōtautahi Christchurch-based artist Steve Carr. Digital video and a series of sculptures are used to explore vastly different time-scales, whether they be geological formations, evaporation, everyday incidents or the growth of flowers.

Classical sculptural techniques of carving marble and casting in bronze and plaster are used to reproduce the forms of mundane and manufactured objects. These are then paired with carefully-placed supplements: living plants, pooling water, river rock, a glass sphere. Highly-specialised camera equipment is employed in order to capture the surprising intersection of a water-balloon bursting, then cascading over a sculptural assemblage of household objects, millisecond by millisecond.

Wresting with brute materials, whether monumental, preparatory, everyday or temporary, these sculptural investigations make manifest variations in speed and slowness, the kinetic and the still.
