The Sculpture Season launches on February 11 with an exhibition by William Hsu, an artist whose work explores the properties of the site it occupies.

Responding to the context and history of the building at 39 Symonds St, Hsu is creating a number of site specific, time bound interventions in the gallery, provoking new ways of thinking about the space.

The 2010 Sculpture Season, at ST PAUL St Gallery Three, is an opportunity to experience the diversity of current sculptural practice in New Zealand. Over the course of the season new work from eleven artists; William Hsu, Kah Bee Chow, Clara Chon, Carol Lee-Honson, Tiffany Rewa Newrick, Diane Atkinson, Museum of True History (MOTH), Erica van Zon, Anthony Cribb, Agnes So and Nick Spratt, will presented in six two week long exhibitions.

Throughout the season the artists will connect with the idea of sculpture in many ways. Making works that range from hand laboured models and exquisitely crafted objects, to ephemeral performative actions such as trying to capture light, or define a sculptural space by filling it with movement; their works trace a trajectory between two trends in sculptural engagement, on one end the production of the sculptural object, and on the other, its dematerialisation

The artists present multiple possibilities for engaging with the world through sculpture. Accessing disciplines as diverse as history, sociology, philosophy, politics, botany, ecology and geology they use the process of research to expand the arena of their art. They meld this research with the personal gesture or action, through this stepping away from the academic connotations of research and accessing forms of communication predicated on the idiosyncratic experiment, the personal connection and the heroic task.
