Gordon Matta-Clark : art, architecture and the attack on modernism by Stephen Walker( Book )

Known for, & even overshadowed by, his brutal & spectacular building cuts, Gordon Matta-Clark's oeuvre is unique in the history of American art. In this book, Walker considers the broad range of Matta-Clark's ephemeral practice, from montage to actual interventions & from performance art & installation to drawing, film & video
Helen Chadwick : constructing identities between art and architecture by Stephen Walker( Book )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 118 libraries worldwide
Highly respected by her peers and hugely influential on the subsequent generation of artists, British artist Helen Chadwick produced a wide-ranging body of work in a variety of media. She also drew upon a panoply of references, from classical Greek through to contemporary architectures, micro-biology, sub-particle physics, and esoteric philosophies. Stephen Walker identifies and explores a consistent range of issues and enduring interests that accompanied and supported Chadwick's realised work, including the relationship between body and space, self and the world; between art and science, the creative self and the creative process. Dismantling and reassembling her thought, Walker here combines a close reading of Chadwick's notebooks and research with broader speculation about their ongoing relevance for artistic and architectural work today.00
Agency : working with uncertain architectures by Florian Kossak( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
While the potential of agency is most frequently taken to be the power and freedom to act for oneself, for the architectural community this also involves the power and responsibility to act as intermediaries on behalf of others. Presenting current thinking from practitioners and scholars from around the world, this book asks for a more active relationship between the humanities, the architectural profession, and society. Considering issues of architectural research as an agency of transformation, this book explores how humanities research can better contribute towards understanding current architectural needs
Major and minor architectural issues in the work of Gordon Matta-Clark by Stephen Walker( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This thesis explores a range of architectural issues that are raised by the oeuvre of the artist Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978). In particular, it examines the ways in which his oeuvre might expand our understanding of the central tenets of architectural modernism, and valorise some issues that modernism downplays or denies. The thesis developed as a response to an awkwardness observed around the reception by both architects and the art world of Matta-Clark's work. It proposes that recent changes in this reception have involved the erasure rather than the acknowledgement of the causes of such awkwardness. In contrast to this general tendency, the thesis suggests that these causes are significant, and that for architecture in particular they provide a resource that can raise a number of important questions for the contemporary situation
