Vanish & Detail
British artist Alison Wilding’s conceptual sculptures combine forms and techniques such as modeling, carving and casting to defuse and challenge the viewer’s expectations, revealing her philosophical and perceptual interest in light, boundary and territory. This unique artist monograph selects more than 20 works featured in the ambitious 2013 exhibition at Tate Britain, London. Each of the five major works on display brings together contrasting materials—from copper and alabaster to rubber and PVC—while testing the relationship between scale and weight. In this rich overview, lush illustrations complement an artist interview with Tate curator Carmen Julía, along with a survey text by art historian Anna Moszynska that explores Wilding’s 40-year career.
