I work from the insight that sculpture is a form of social material and that producing exhibitions is an aspect of cultural research. The very act of putting objects on exhibition is comprehended as the substance of installation practice itself, in both its cultural and social variations. Working out from the perspective of Zoos, Botanical gardens, and World exhibitions as representations of a "geography of exhibiting", these sites are explored in their relationship to the contemporary museum through the significance of their related display practices.
Trevor Gould teaches sculpture and is a member of one of the research groups in Hexagram, Institute for Research and Creation in Media Arts and Technologies.
