Alina Szapocznikow: Sculpture Undone 1955-1972
Description
By Elena Filipovic and Joanna Mytkowska. With essays by Cornelia Butler, Jola Gola, and Allegra Pesenti

A sculptor who began working during the postwar period in a classical figurative style, Alina Szapocznikow radically reconceptualized sculpture as an imprint not only of memory but of her own body. Though her career spanned less than two decades, Szapocznikow left behind a legacy of provocative objects that evoke Surrealism, Nouveau Réalisme, and Pop art. Well-known in Poland, where her work has been highly influential since early in her career, Szapocznikow's compelling body of work is ripe for art-historical reexamination. Alina Szapocznikow: Sculpture Undone, 1955–1972 offers a comprehensive overview of this important artist's work at a moment when international interest is blossoming. Richly illustrated with over 150 color plates, the catalogue features essays by curators that touch on key aspects of her practice and historical reception, as well as an extensive annotated chronology that provides an in-depth exploration of the intersection of her life and art.

Flexibound. 216 pages. 326 illustrations.
