Description

Rachel Kneebone (born 1973, Oxfordshire) is a London-based artist internationally renowned for her porcelain sculptures that intricately fuse human, natural and abstract forms to explore universal themes such as sexual desire, mortality, anguish and despair.

Launched in anticipation of`399 Days', Kneebone's latest presentation at White Cube, London, in summer 2014, this publication features works from Kneebone's acclaimed solo exhibition at Brooklyn Museum in 2012, which included eight of the artist's works in dialogue with fifteen bronze sculptures by Auguste Rodin.

Featuring a foreword by Catherine Morris and a text by Ali Smith, this beautifully designed and produced hardback publication contains over fifty colour reproductions and has been developed with support from Brooklyn Museum.
