Featuring a range of energetic sculptural forms that seem to ooze, undulate, blossom, erupt and sprawl across gallery spaces, When Forms Come Alive: Sixty Years of Restless Sculpture explores the ways in which artists have been inspired by movement, flux and organic growth, from a dancer’s gesture to the breaking of a wave, or from a flow of molten metal to the interlacing of a spider’s web. This 240-page hardback, cloth-spined book includes essays by Hayward Gallery Director Ralph Rugoff and art historian Natalie Rudd which cite the artists' work within the context of postminimalism, and explore formal and material innovation in sculpture across the past half century. Texts on each artist by a range of writers accompany a rich selection of images.
Includes the works of 21 international artists, namely Ruth Asawa, Nairy Baghramian, Phyllida Barlow, Lynda Benglis, Michel Blazy, Paloma Bosquê, Olaf Brzeski, Choi Jeong Hwa, Tara Donovan, DRIFT, Eva Fábregas, Holly Hendry, EJ Hill, Marguerite Humeau, Jean-Luc Moulène, Senga Nengudi, Ernesto Neto, Martin Puryear, Matthew Ronay, Teresa Solar Abboud and Franz West.
