Angela Bulloch — Universal Mineral

Copper Single, 2010

Hong KongArt & Culture

Cool, Calm and Calculating

Heavenly mathematics is the order of the day at Hong Kong exhibition...

Canadian Angela Bulloch is an artist who likes things lit up, lined up, squared off. Not for her the chaos of her late 1980s contemporaries, but the order of mathematics, the beauty of geometry, and the calculable comfort of frequency.

Since her graduation from Goldsmith’s College in ’88, Bulloch has been known for her employment of the cube, framed in beech, and more recently copper and aluminium, fronted with coloured glass that filters the pulsing light inside. Ranks present themselves, single examples hang from the ceiling, they stack up or remain in solitude. A second of her themed creations are the skyscapes, sections of the heavens cut from the universal map and recreated, after some extrapolating calculations, in light installation form. She previously covered the entire ceiling of a Frank Lloyd Wright exhibition at the Guggenheim, in the case of her solo show at the Simon Lee Gallery, Hong Kong, the scope is limited to the dimensions of a wall. Universal Mineral will shine on until 4th July.
