Revolutions per Minute

July 22 – August 21, 2010


Paul Cullen says “Revolutions per Minute is an ongoing sculptural project I’ve been developing since 1994, currently comprised of sixteen completed sculptures with others still in development. Revolutions per Minute is characterised by the deployment of either rotation or circulation. Early works like The Geographer (2) feature a rotating world globe, while in Discovery of Oxygen and In Vitro water is circulated through a system of improvised plumbing.”

Each sculpture is based around a common object, tables and chairs mostly, with items such as plastic fruit, world globes, rulers and electric motors providing the basis for rotation. Works involving the circulation of water employ pipes and hoses, stainless steel and plastic buckets, cardboard boxes, and water pumps.

This exhibition will showcase sculptures from the 1990’s alongside more recent iterations of the project.

Later in the year an accompanying catalogue will be available, thanks to funding from Creative New Zealand.
