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

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 287 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."--

Jeff Koons : celebration by Jeff Koons( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in German and English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeff Koons' spectacular October 2008 exhibition at Berlin's Neue Nationalgalerie presented the infamous series of sculptures and paintings known collectively as Celebration, a project whose fabrication has involved so much labor (both manual and computer-aided) that Koons More...seemed to almost vanish from the art world radar in the 1990s, when he first undertook the series. At present, Celebration's best-known work may be the 10-foot-tall, stainless-steel Balloon Dog, typical of the outsize scale and remarkably clean sheen of Koons' sculptures, in which the sensory joys of childhood object relations are revisited and espoused. Such works wear their playroom origins on their sleeves, but their gargantuan proportions, with their attendant sense of menace, establish them firmly in the adult world as infant objects retrieved and rebuilt with adult strength. The work tries to gain support from the confidence of the gesture, Koons says, to be kind of in the moment, and to have confidence within the self. Inasmuch as such observations could be true of much art, Koons is unusually open about what drives his work, all the while preserving its self-sufficiency as art. This monograph documents these mammoth installations in the Neue Nationalgalerie's Upper Hall, an exhibition that without doubt constitutes a milestone in the artist's career

Jeff Koons : one ball total equilibrium tank by Michael Archer( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Jeff Koons's One Ball Total Equilibrium Tank (1985), a Spalding basketball floats in the centre of a glass tank that rests on a simple black metal stand. The work presents what Koons called 'the penultimate state of being' - neither death nor life, but a suspended state of rest. It has been called one of the defining works of the 1980s, but was also described as 'an endgame', 'misleading' and part of a 'repulsive' practice"--Jacket

In October 2014 the Moderna Museet will premiere Sculpture after Sculpture a major exhibition that brings together the work of three of today’s most esteemed artists, Katharina Fritsch, Jeff Koons, and Charles Ray. The exhibition at the Moderna Museet is the first in which these ground breaking artists can be seen together in appreciable depth.0A focused examination of thirteen large-scale masterworks presented in a series of telling juxtapositions, Sculpture after Sculpture traces the parallel developments of Katharina Fritsch (b. 1956), Jeff Koons (b. 1955), and Charles Ray (b. 1953). Beginning with iconic works from the late ’80s and early ’90s, which highlight the artists’ shared relationship to the commodity and the readymade, the exhibition follows the development of their practices up to the present. Highlights of the exhibition include Jeff Koons’s celebrated Michael Jackson and Bubbles, 1988, a porcelain and gilt confection depicting the late Pop legend Michael Jackson with his pet chimpanzee for which the sculpture is named; Charles Ray’s two-ton aluminium Tractor, 2005; and Katharina Fritsch’s acid yellow apparition Madonnenfigur (Madonna Figure), 1987. 0Exhibition: Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden (11.10.2014 -18.1.2015)
