Even sculptors love to play with paper. Check out Horizons by Neil Dawson. What seems to be a giant piece of paper landing on a lonesome hilltop is actually welded steel purposely planted in the heart of Gibbs Farm.
Horizons was one of the first pieces commissioned for this private sculpture collection in New Zeland. Almost 20 years later, the collection now includes major works by Graham Bennett, Chris Booth, Daniel Buren, Bill Culbert, Neil Dawson, Marijke de Goey, Andy Goldsworthy, Ralph Hotere, Anish Kapoor, Sol LeWitt, Len Lye, Russell Moses, Peter Nicholls, Eric Orr, Tony Oursler, George Rickey, Peter Roche, Richard Serra, Kenneth Snelson, Richard Thompson, Leon van den Eijkel and Zhan Wang. Road trip anyone? [KR]
