Description

Showcases forty-five artists who are pushing the boundaries of scale to create works of staggering skill and audacity.

In this follow-up to the bestselling Raw + Material = Art, Tristan Manco reveals international artists who are exploring extremes of scale and making us look at the world in new ways: from Lilian Bourgeat, who conjures a theatrical arena with his oversized everyday objects, to Takahiro Iwasaki, who transports us into a miniature world that reflects our own, to Leandro Erlich’s dizzying ‘house’ in Dalston, London.

The artists are all highly innovative in their choice of materials, which include fog (Fujiko Nakaya), crayons and pencils (Diem Chau), leaves (Lorenzo Manuel Durán), inflatables (Choi Jeong-Hwa), salt (Motoi Yamamoto) and digital media (Yang Yongliang).

Stylishly designed and highly accessible, this book will appeal to artists, designers and anyone interested in creative approaches to form, medium and technique.
