Ronnie van Hout's 'Quasi' installed at the Christchurch Art Gallery, NZ

16 June 2016

Ronnie van Hout's five-meter tall sculptural work Quasi has been installed atop the Christchurch Art Gallery. The work comes from a scanning of van Hout's body parts, combining them into a single figure that is surreal, uncanny and humorous. The sculpute refers to the fact that it is a quasi object, neither a full fledged person, nor just a part of a person, and references the notion of "the artist hand" whilst also touching on the fictional Parisian hunchback Quasimodo.

Quasi will be on display until December 2017
