Phyllida Barlow: Objects for... and other things
Library Shelf Location 18.BARL
Publication Date 2004
Description Phyllida Barlow, a graduate from the slade school of fine art, is part of the contemporary art scene. Her work consists predominantly of large, three-dimensional installations in which the use of space - and our relationship to it - plays an important role. As if watching a play unfold on stage, the viewer witnesses the work and its carefully constructed plot. Through the book the reader is presented with the creative process of her body of work. "My intentions are to activate a space through representing an equivalent drama as generated by human relationships; to create a difficult longing between two or three objects within a space. I want the objects to take ownership of the space indicating a parasite/host encounter between the two, but where space or object can be either parasite or host and where each retains its autonomy."
