Helen Chadwick: Constructing Identities Between Art and Architecture

Helen Chadwick: Constructing Identities Between Art and Architecture
Library Shelf Location 18.CHAD
Publication Date 2013
Description Shifting from early institutional and architectural critique to personal, poetic installations, large format photography projects and sculptures, British artist Helen Chadwick produced a wide-ranging body of work in an assortment of media. In this book, Stephen Walker looks beyond the apparent variety of this work and identifies a consistent range of issues and enduring interests. Critical of the impact that limiting political, philosophical and scientific constructions have on identity, Chadwick's art can offer insights into a number of major, enduring questions: the relationship between body and space, self and world; between art and science; between artifice and nature; between theory and practice, the creative self and the creative process. Walker combines a close reading of Chadwick's notebooks and research with a broader investigation into their ongoing relevance for artistic and architectural work today.
