AboutPaul Carter discusses his working practice particularly the ideas and methods behind his show Rm.14. He also shows images of his âHotel' installation, on concurrently at Matt's Gallery.
Rm.14 is a year of new work supported by the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award, which Paul Carter won in September 2008.
Whatever the thing is, it must not obviously be art. Pulled from a construction site, a bombsite, left to rot where they fall, these raw objects are packed into cubic spaces, vertical spaces, horizontal spaces, to be stored, the anti-archive of rot and residue. Carter does not reclaim his materials, he subjects them to pressure until they break or become.
