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

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 292 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."--

Parkett. Sturtevant, Andro Wekua, Kerstin Brätsch, Paul Chan, insert, Silke Otto-Knapp( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the question of art's political potential is raised in contemporary art discourse (and sometimes it seems nothing else is), the main tendency since at least the 1990s has been to question the distinction between its two terms: to "blur the line between art and life," as the phrase goes. a political activist and an artist, Paul Chan might be the exemplary figure for the great blur -- if he didn't spend all his time resisting it. as he puts it in an interview with George Baker, "the desire to bridge what we call art and politics is in fact a fear of both."

Shadows on the facade by Andro Wekua( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Internet de Nieves: "Georgian born and raised artist Andro Wekua (Sochumi, 1977), and now Zurich based, has been depicted as a master of suggestion, of small gestures. His narrative structures are deadly focused on their targets, yet remain astonishingly open. Wekua locates his drawn, collaged or sculptural images in a No-Man's Land between East and West, aesthetic exactness and improvisation, confidence and melancholy. He creates his own highly visual scripts which play with his past and stylize it into fiction. Shadows on the Facade is Wekua's second monograph published by Nieves and the first in full color, showcasing some of its most recent production. Wekua's work has been selected to take part in the forthcoming prestigious 55th Carnegie International exhibition, curated by Douglas Fogle in Pittsburgh (May 3rd, 2008 to January 11th, 2009)."

Gems survey by Andro Wekua( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gems Survey is a book of memories: Pinned to the bare field of each page, huddled in the corners like frightened animals, are small images of buildings, scraps of cities and shreds of skies, clippings of stars and far off galaxies. These are the places that Andro Wekua has traveled to, real and imaginary, environments that influence and make-up a large part of his oeuvre."
