The human factor : the figure in contemporary sculpture ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'The Human Factor: the Figure in Contemporary Sculpture' brings together the work of 25 leading international artists, in whose practice the human form plays a central role. Over the past 25 years, artists have reinvented figurative sculpture by looking back to earlier movements in art history as well as imagery from contemporary culture. Setting up dialogues with modernist as well as classical and archaic models of art, these artists engage and confront the question of how we represent the 'human' today. Eschewing concerns related to psychological portraiture, these artists use the figure as a catalyst for evoking far-ranging content, including subjects spanning political violence and mortality to sexuality and voyeurism. A unique survey of figurative sculpture today, this highly illustrated volume features newly-commissioned essays by authors including Tate Britain Director, Penelope Curtis, art critic and writer Martin Herbert, Artangel co-director James Lingwood, art historian Lisa Lee and Hayward Gallery Director, and curator of the exhibition, Ralph Rugoff. Alongside full-colour images of the artists' works, the book also includes original and rarely-seen material documenting the creation of these fascinating works.--Publisher

The inimitable works of art by Jeff Koons (b. 1955 in York, Pennsylvania), one of the most famous artists in the world today, have been causing uproars since the eighties. This publication is an in-depth examination of three major groups of works: "The New" (1980-87), "Banality" (1988), and "Celebration" (ongoing since 1994), each one of which represents a spectacular and consequential phase in Koons's oeuvre. Ready-made objects from "The New" are transformed in "Banality" into wondrous, provocative sculptures created with traditional craftsmanship. A few years later, painting and sculpture appeared on an even par in "Celebration." Hence, these three influential, manifesto-like stages are capable of providing insight into the work and ideas of Jeff Koons
