Asher Bilu: Doing Business with the Cosmic

From the beginning, Asher Bilus work has had two loci of concentration: the mystery of matter, its structures, boundaries and possibilities, and Mystery itself, space, sound, reverberations of the invisible, the very universe. Bilu takes on the physical demands of his experiments like a workman, he manipulates them like a technician. This article examines Bilus art practice from his early days as a migrant in Australia and winner of the prestigious Blake Prize to his recent work the Infinity Series.
