Artist Bill Culbert Installing Daylight flotsam Venice (2013) and Drop (2013)

Artist Bill Culbert created Daylight flotsam Venice (2013) and Drop (2013) as part of his exhibition at the prestigious Venice Biennale, where he represented New Zealand in 2013. Here, he installs the work for their first exhibition in New Zealand as part of Ngā Toi | Arts Te Papa.

Light has been Culbert’s medium and subject for decades. Daylight flotsam Venice (2013) and Drop (2013) explore the interplay between fluorescent light tubes and everyday objects. Culbert says:

The simplest and cheapest material to me is often … the most exciting … no matter how beaten up.
