Paul Carter Biography

Paul Carter was born in London, United Kingdom, where he continues to live and work. Carter’s sculptural practice investigates the expanded possibilities and limited enclosures afforded by architectural structures and objects. Often incorporating found materials and reclaimed fixtures such as elevators and sash window frames into his works, Carter explores architectural forms and modules’ capacity to act, signify, affect, shut in and project. Though static, his pieces appear to alternately implode and expand, heave and relax, moving toward meaningful form only to sink back into inert stuff. Highlighting scale and process of making, Carter allows his works to travel back and forth between representation and incarnation. Invested with fleeting impressions of a lost scene, his installations sculptural pieces and video suggest different timeframes: from long-winded processes of construction and decay, to the temporary uses associated with hotel rooms, elevators and other transitory spaces.

Paul Carter has presented solo exhibitions at Shift, London (2012), LOBE, Berlin (2010), Matt’s Gallery, London (2009), Standpoint Gallery, London (2009) Fordham Gallery, London (2008). His work has also been shown as part of "Soot from the Funnel" at Lokaal 01, Breda, Holland (2008), "Parallax" at Fieldgate Gallery, London (2008), "The Breakfast Club" at HOV, London (2007), "Citadel 1 Front Room Killing Room" at David Risley Gallery, London (2007), "Videoisme" at Mains D'Oeuvres, Paris (2007), "Pilot 1. International Art Forum", London (2004) and "Covered Flash" at Whitechapel Project Space, London (2004). He is a recipient of the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award (2008), and was nominated for the Paul Hamlym Award (2008)
