Bruce is in the Garden; So Someone is in the Garden
Call it an exhibition catalog, monograph or exhibition catalog: this extensively illustrated book on the major New Zealand artist Sean Kerr is as surprising as Kerr’s installations. His website opens with a video of him inconspicuously playing a snare drum as people arrive at a gallery. Known for using technology to create comic situations and good-natured affronts to the prevailing culture, he has also made a large and influential body of work in sound, installation, video and 2D formats. This major publication has been produced as a parallel project to a major survey exhibition of Kerr’s work in Aukland. Includes a substantial pictorial chronology of Kerr’s gregariously varied practice, an interview with the artist, and texts by several contributors.
