Neil Kilby

Lipslide 1, 2017 

Neil Kilby is based in London and creates sculptural installations. Rail Slide 1 and Lip Slide 1 explore the re-appropriation of readymade objects. The kerbstones comprising these works are laid out to mimic how skateboarders would use them. Rail Slide 1 consists of two HB2 concrete kerbstones arranged back to back, supporting one another, creating a composite sculpture. Lip Slide 1, following the same principle, groups four stones together aligned in two rows. The artist’s sculptural interventions function as a link between skateboarding culture and minimalism, echoing the works of Walter De Maria (1935-2013) and Carl Andre.
