Biography

Andrew Drummond tends to focus on process and ritual while contemplating ideas of location. He considers the entanglements of the human body, ecology, and dislocated histories within the landscapes of New Zealand. In the 1970s, he created several documented performance works. Drummond lives and works in Christchurch, New Zealand. He earned his degree in Fine Arts from the University of Waterloo, Canada, and has held the position of senior lecturer in sculpture at the University of Canterbury, School of Fine Arts.

Drummond has established a career that embraces sculpture, installation, video, drawing, and photography. He is a craftsman, an environmental advocate, an inventor. His early practice saw him emerge as a pioneer of performance art, highlighting disquiet about important environmental and political issues in the 1970s and 1980s. Today, his work is held in various public and private collections and he has been commissioned to create a number of outdoor public sculptures. Whether creating meditative sculptural installations using natural and found materials or a large-scale dynamic kinetic sculpture, his work speaks to the natural environment and continues to engage and intrigue.

The Chronology below from 1973 – 2010 is taken from the book Andrew Drummond: Action / Observation / Reflection and was collated by Jennifer Hay.

Recent work includes the commissions Armillary for Air, Rolling Sphere and Leaf Forms.

Works can be purchased via Page Blackie Gallery and Johnathan Smart Gallery.

ANZART continued as a project until 1986, with venues in Hobart, Edinburgh, Portsmouth and Auckland. It received significant funding from government agencies in Australia and New Zealand. ANZART 1 is still seen internationally as a significant benchmark project.
