The human factor : the figure in contemporary sculpture by Hayward Gallery( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 271 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."--

The making of Yes : at the Geffen Contemporary, 13 March-7 April 2013 by Calif.) Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Making of Yes features photographs by Cassandra MacLeod documenting a vast collaborative project by Urs Fischer with contributions by 1,500 individuals who were invited to work in clay over the weeks preceding the opening of Fischer's retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. All were asked to join Fischer in making figures and animals out of clay, allowing for variation within a theme so that the possibilities for style, structure, scale and finish would be open to exploration while preserving the unity of the project. Filling the expansive spaces of the museum, the unfired clay forms disintegrated over time to create a fantastical landscape of fragmented figures. The lively photographs in this volume convey the hands-on sense of fun and excitement the individual participants experienced from partaking in this exuberant project"--Publisher
Urs Fischer by Urs Fischer( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Urs Fischer' provides an overview of the Swiss artist's heterogeneous oeuvre and features many of his best-known works. Designed and conceived by Fischer, the book is arranged thematically rather than chronologically, with clusters of works that allow the reader to observe how Fischer has explored disparate formal strategies to engage with his multifarious interests which include gravity, architecture, shadows, representation, destruction, entropy and time and revisit favorite motifs, such as furniture, fruit, animals, skeletons and other surrogates for his cardinal subject, the human body, over the past decade and a half. Produced for his retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, this hefty volume includes essays by Jessica Morgan and Ulrich Lehmann that unpack the dominant thematics in Fischer's work and examine the significance of the materials and production techniques in his sculptural practice.
