Louise Bourgeois has said, "For me, sculpture is the body. My body is my sculpture."
This volume examines existential questions in contemporary sculpture via organic, biological and anthropomorphic forms which expand upon the concept of matter. The bulging, mutated, crude, futuristic, prehistoric, skeletal, genetic, seeping, sucking, cellular, larval, hybrid quasi-living forms of such artists as Ruth Asawa, Louise Bourgeois, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Lee Bul, Georg Herold, Liz Larner, Ernesto Neto, Carsten Nicolai, Franz West, Xiao Yu and Xu Zhen are featured, among many others.
