VIDEO: John Chamberlain installing “New Sculpture” at Gagosian Gallery, West 24th Street New York


May 5th – July 8th , 2011 Gagosian Gallery, West 24th Street
I think of my art materials not as junk but as garbage. Manure, actually; it goes from being the waste material of one being to the life-source of another.
John Chamberlain

Chamberlain is best known for his distinctive metal sculptures constructed from discarded automobile-body parts and other modern industrial detritus, which he began making in the late 1950s. His singular method of putting these elements together led to his inclusion in the paradigmatic exhibition “The Art of Assemblage,” at the Museum of Modern Art in 1961, where his work was shown alongside modern masters such as Marcel Duchamp and Pablo Picasso.

Gagosian Gallery is now the worldwide representative of John Chamberlain and are having an exhibition of new sculptures by him presented concurrently at the 24th Street gallery in New York and the Britannia Street gallery in London.
