    Bill Culbert, Pacific Flotsam

This new exhibition by internationally acclaimed artist Bill Culbert follows the stand-out success of his installations at the 55th Venice Biennale of Art.

It features Pacific Flotsam, an eddy of fluorescent light and plastic containers and Strait, a line of milk bottles pierced by a single horizontal fluorescent tube, alongside recent sculptures and wall works. This is his largest solo project in Australia to date. Working with found materials and everyday sources of light, Bill Culbert creates illuminated environments that radiate energy and simplicity.

His art brings elegant formality to the chaos of everyday experience, inviting us to revalue familiar things and focus our perceptions.

Presented by National Art School in association with Sydney Festival.
