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

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 301 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."--
Fractured figure : works from the Dakis Joannou collection by Urs Fischer( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Internet d'Amazon.com (Vol. 1): "A culture's body image, as refracted through its art, will usually provide a more telling account of its preoccupations than the most explicit political art; it seems that cultural symptoms leak more readily into depictions of the body than into more overt statements. This is especially true in periods of heightened alienation, when the solitary figure gains poignancy, but bodies register their eras in many ways: the signifiers of opulence, imperialism, fashion, social decay, sexual convention and anxiety can all be readily inscribed onto the human form in art--and indeed, always have been. Fractured Figure projects our millennial moment as one of fragile bodies pitched against a restless, dysphasic backdrop, in which terrorism and global warming impinge as daily realities. It draws on the world-renowned contemporary collection of Dakis Joannou, who, in collaboration with Jeffrey Deitch, has previously organized shows such as Artificial Nature and Post Human, in which similar concerns have arisen. Here, in works by Chris Ofili, David Altmejd, Richard Prince, Urs Fischer, Pawel Althamer, Ashley Bickerton, Barnaby Furnas and others, the figure is shown as un-idealized and compellingly mortal--situated in a realm that we will immediately recognize as our own."

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 55 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

Good smell, make-up tree by Urs Fischer( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Internet des Presses du réel: " Conçu par l'artiste comme un journal d'atelier, ce livre hors-format amène le lecteur au centre du processus créatif de Fischer. Jouant sur une énergie artistique à la Dieter Roth, ses sculptures, dessins, peintures et installations se conçoivent comme des éléments incessamment recombinables et modifiables. Ce catalogue contient 200 pages des partitions de Seven Suites Strings & Oboe [021024] et Seven Piano Etudes [021230] par Garrick Jones (enregistrement à télécharger sur www.garrickjones.com). Les instructions pour les musiciens, DJ's et techniciens sont "faites-en ce que vous en ferez". Le premier cycle des remixes réalisés autour de cette oeuvre a été achevé le 9 janvier 2004 par Darren Richards, Leafcutter John, Jamie McCarthy, Scanner, Mika Sellens et Steve Taylor. Il est édité en CD. Le second cycle a été achevé le 9 mars 2004 à l'occasion du spectacle de Urs Fisher au Centre Pompidou, Paris. Garrick Jones est né en 1965 sur un bateau dans l'océan indien. Il a été élevé en Afrique, en Europe et aux Etats-Unis. Il est compositeur, interprète de musiques improvisées, ingénieur de formation universitaire, et consultant basé à Londres. Photographe de formation, Urs Fischer (né en 1973 à Zurich) apparaît comme l'un des représentants les plus visionnaires de la jeune génération d'artistes suisses. Il se consacre essentiellement aux techniques traditionnelles du dessin, de la sculpture et de la peinture, mais son œuvre, à la fois puissante et lyrique, se développe à contre courant des canons esthétiques. Assemblant des objets et des matériaux divers, mêlant des références sociales et artistiques, des questionnements personnels et des thèmes politiques, le travail d'Urs Fisher consiste en une entreprise de défamiliarisation des situations et des objets quotidiens qui ouvre des perspectives inédites sur un monde étrange. Urs Fischer a notamment présenté des expositions monographiques au Institute of Contemporary Art, Londres (2000), au Stedeljik Bureau, Amsterdam (2000), à la Kunsthaus Glarus (2000), au Santa Monica Museum of Art (2003)... Il expose régulièrement à la Galerie Presenhuber, Zurich, chez Sadie Coles HQ, Londres et à la Gavin Brown's Enterprise, New York. Le Centre Georges Pompidou à Paris lui a consacré une exposition en 2004 (le catalogue Good smell / Make-up tree a été publié par JRP#x9C;Ringier à cette occasion)."
