Bill Bollinger, The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, Scotland

bill bollinger - fruitmarket gallery

Bollinger's work is characterised by his sensitive use of the idiosyncrasies and possibilities offered by technical and industrial materials. His use of aluminium pipes, rope, rubber hoses, chain-link fencing, lightbulbs and wheelbarrows is as radical and direct as it is elegant, exploiting physical laws such as gravity, balance, and the intrinsic properties of water.

visual-vissers

Brent: While artist-in-residence in the most western point of Ireland, Achill Island, you tapped in a description of the landscape: Dramatic, With Cliffs, An Ocean, And Totally Isolated. This is your work: my first impression. There is Nature in your pieces. And it took a tough wind and a heavy sea to set this all in motion. I see firm – more than firm, hard.

Logic is regularly challenged in apparently inflexible materials and irrefutable forms. Her plate steel sculptures are executed in 8-15mm steel and weigh up to 200kg. In this material, she intervenes with only one, […]
