Alexander Knox

14 March – 20 May 2017

 
 

Alexander Knox is a Melbourne-based artist whose sculpture practice ranges from the discrete to the monumental. Knox has realised a broad range of major public art projects including installation, illuminated and audio projects; kinetic sculpture; and in situ architectural installations. 
 
In late 2015 Alexander Knox was announced as the tenth and final artist in the Ten Cubed core collection. The announcement was made after the Ten Cubed acquisition of Things I’m working through 2015, from Murray White Room. These four geometric beech wood sculptures explore the concept of a “psychological block set” and represented the entire Things I’m working through project at that time. This major acquisition forms the foundation for the artist’s first solo exhibition at Ten Cubed. Also included are two ambitious new works that employ art historical references to explore the nexus between abstraction and figuration. 

The National Gallery of Victoria commissioned Youth group from the Things I’m working through series in 2015; in 2016 Knox completed a kinetic semaphore work for the Australian National Maritime Museum; Knox completed Creature, a major steel and carbon fibre sculpture commission at the New Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne in 2011; in 2010 the artist was commissioned to illuminate AAMI Park, Olympic Boulevard, Melbourne with an integrated kinetic light system; Knox was awarded the Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture in 2008; in 2006 he won the Helen Lempriere Sculpture Award after receiving the People’s Choice Award and a high commendation in 2005; in addition to numerous public and private commissions. Alexander Knox is represented by Murray White Room, Melbourne.
