Helen Chadwick : constructing identities between art and architecture by Stephen Walker ( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Shifting from early institutional and architectural critique to personal, poetic installations, photography projects and sculptures, British artist Helen Chadwick (1953-1996) produced a wide-ranging body of work in an assortment of media. In this book, Stephen Walker looks beyond the apparent variety of this work and identifies a consistent range of issues and enduring interests. Critical of the impact that limiting political, philosophical and scientific constructions have on identity, Chadwick's art can offer insights into a number of major, enduring questions: the relationship between body
Major and minor architectural issues in the work of Gordon Matta-Clark by Stephen Walker ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
