Failure by Lisa Le Feuvre( Book )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amidst current global uncertainty failure has become a central subject of investigation in recent art. Artists have actively claimed the space of failure to propose a resistant view of the world. Here success is deemed overrated, doubt embraced, experimentation encouraged and risk considered a viable position. Between the poles of success and failure lies a productive space where paradox rules and dogma is refused. This anthology establishes failure as a core concern in contemporary cultural production. Failure is one of a series documenting major themes and ideas in contemporary art."

Günther Förg : a fragile beauty by Günther Förg( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gunther Förg (1952-2013) was a German painter, sculptor, and photographer with an irreverent approach to abstraction. Förg's project tackled the latent instability between image and reality. His painterly surfaces may appear exquisitely sensitive, his installations elegantly precise, but these are mastered and executed with a cold detachment. His deft manipulations of the languages of abstraction obscured a darker message. This publication, the most comprehensive to date, offers an important new understanding of this extraordinary and complex artist. Three years in the making, it reinterprets Förg's oeuvre to reveal an artistic project that raises important questions about the traditional role of an object as a conveyor of fixed meaning. The book's subtitle--"A Fragile Beauty"--is an indication of how Förg successfully manipulated what is behind and beyond an object's appearance

Undone : making and unmaking in contemporary sculpture( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Undone brings together sculptures by twenty artists working across Europe and North and South America, united by a common aesthetic that lies on the threshold between made and unmade. Constructed by hand from everyday materials using simple techniques, these deceptively complex and finely balanced structures propose a new direction for sculpture today." -- Back cover
Ice blink : an antarctic essay by Simon Faithfull( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Travelling to Antarctica, from RAF Brize Norton via Ascension Island and the Falklands, Simon Faithfull recorded the displaced and disorienting world he encountered. He filmed the view looking out from his cabin porthole on the RSS Ernest Shackleton, taking in passing icebergs and frozen seas, and responded to his surroundings with Palm Pilot drawings transmitted each day to e-mail inboxes around the world. Combined with diary entries and notes, these drawings and films have been incorporated into a series of lectures presented in Edinburgh, Helsinki, Norwich, Berlin and London. Also reproduced in book form, Ice Blink: an Antarctic Essay is a dispatch from nowhere, exploring the Antarctic as a hole in the imagination, combining Antarctic myths and fictions, histories of colonial endeavour, lifecycles of icebergs and the very real effects of global warming, with images of contested and uncharted territories
A lesson in sculpture with John Latham by John Latham( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication accompanies the exhibition, A Lesson in Sculpture with John Latham at the Henry Moore Institute, that addresses the British artist?s visionary contribution to the study of sculpture. John Latham rethought the limits and possibilities of art, and a study of his sculpture is a lesson in the changes that have taken place in post-war sculpture. The focus on Latham?s work spans 1958 to 1992, beginning in the year that he began to make sculpture. In the spirit of his own work, this publication and exhibition places Latham in relation to 16 artists working across the 20th and 21st centuries, including Tony Cragg, Marcel Duchamp, Mary Kelly, Cornelia Parker and Michelangelo Pistoletto. Fully illustrated, the three essays in this book address value, science and material transformations: key terms for Latham. Alongside the commissioned texts, artists Katie Paterson, Liliane Lijn and Neal White reflect on Latham?s influence.00Exhibition: Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, UK (24.03.-19.06.2016)

Jiro Takamatsu : the temperature of sculpture by Jirō Takamatsu( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jiro Takamatsu (1936-98) is central to the development of post-war art in Japan. He expanded points into volume, brought sculptural actions into the life of the city, and made shadows and perspective tangible.0'The Temperature of Sculpture' is the first institutional solo exhibition of Takamatsu outside of his home country, presenting over seventy works made between 1961 and 1977.0Takamatsu sought out the interplay between presence and absence, carefully thinking through relationships between artwork and its perceiver. He turned to sculpture in 1961, applying sculptural thinking to see how objects might change their?temperature?.0The materials Takamatsu chose were always ready at hand. Sometimes they were tangible - everyday objects such as bottles, cloth, string, stones or furniture. Other times they had a strong association to sculptural traditions - such as marble, wood, concrete and iron. Significantly, he made use of intangible properties - perspective, shadows and numbers. These he made material and metaphorical in objects, events and drawings, giving form to the imponderables of space and time.00Exhibition: Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, UK (13.07. - 22.10.2017)
Laura White : the stuff of images by Laura White( Book )

Sculpture and the vitrine by John C Welchman( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vitrines and glass cabinets are familiar apparatuses that have in large part defined modern modes of display and visibility, both within and beyond the museum. They separate objects from their contexts, group them with other objects, both similar and dissimilar, and often serve to reinforce their intrinsic or aesthetic values. The vitrine has much in common with the picture frame, the plinth and the gallery, but it has not yet received the kind of detailed art historical and theoretical discussion that has been brought to these other modes of formal display. The twelve contributions to this volume examine some of the points of origin of the vitrine and the various relations it brokers with sculpture, first in the Wunderkammer and cabinet of curiosities and then in dialog with the development of glazed architecture beginning with Paxton's Crystal Palace (1851). The collection offers close discussions of the role of the vitrine and shop window in the rise of commodity culture and their apposition with Constructivist design in the work of Frederick Kiesler; as well as original readings of the use of vitrines in Surrealism and Fluxus, and in work by Joseph Beuys, Paul Thek, Claes Oldenburg and his collaborators, Jeff Koons, Mike Kelley, Dan Graham, Vito Acconci, Damien Hirst and Josephine Meckseper, among others. Sculpture and the Vitrine also raises key questions about the nature and implications of vitrinous space, including its fronts onto desire and the spectacle; transparency and legibility; and onto ideas and practices associated with the archive: collecting, preserving and ordering."--Provided by publisher

Stephen Cripps : performing machines by Stephen Cripps( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The oeuvre of British artist, Stephen Cripps (1952-1982) was highly innovative and experimental. His works developed out of an interest for kinetic sculpture and machines as well as from a fascination for the poetic potential of explosion and destruction. Until his early death, Cripps built machines and interactive installations and realised pyrotechnical performances. He developed many of his projects through the mediums of drawing and collage. This timely publication turns the spotlight on the trans-media character and multi-sensory quality of Cripps's oeuvre, particularly through its focus on the artist's drawings. Through its combination of works on paper, audio material, film and documentary media, 'Performing Machines' sets out to showcase the hybrid quality of Cripps's performative praxis. Drawings and sound recordings, the visual and the acoustic, thus complement each other in a feast for both eyes and ears. He staged performances in the UK, Europe and the United States ; exhibited at Serpentine Gallery, London (1975), and had three solo exhibitions at The Acme Gallery, London (1978, 1980 and 1981). From 1974 onward, Cripps designed sets for two theatre productions by Stephen Berkoff. He often collaborated with musicians: one notable example is the 1979 pyrotechnic performance at the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, created with percussionist, Paul Burwell.Exhibition: Museum Tinguely, Basel, Switzerland (27.01.-01.05.2017)
