Gail Hastings makes sculptuations (sculptural situations).
Material space constitutes a sculptuation. It is a type of space artists, such as Donald Judd, developed in the early 1960s.
It is a built space, a space put together with hammer and nails. It is not the found space of a room that automatically surrounds us. It is space to look at, not through. It is a space that gets us, no matter how little we get it.
A part of art, now, for over fifty years, only a few words have been tasked to describe it—leaving much, still, to understand.
Notwithstanding, as the focus of Gail’s practice for over twenty-five years, the uncharted hold of this space remains unrelenting and propelling.
Gail Hastings’ studio is in the Sydney suburb of Waterloo, NSW (Australia). To contact Gail Hastings, please use the contact form at the top right of this page.
