Carol Bove Manuals 2010


CBManuals-cover CBManuals-spread1
Carol Bove (b. 1971) is known for her simple yet intricate assemblages of found and made objects. Carefully arranged on pedestals, elevated platforms, or directly against walls and ceilings, these yield unexpected, poetic, and multilayered meanings, which seem to derive from the composition of the objects rather than the inherent substance of the individual components. Using a wide range of materials, including books, driftwood, peacock feathers, metal, concrete, foam, and loans from other artists, Bove’s works are subtle assemblages resisting categorization despite their determined relationships with modernist display methods.

This beautifully designed book contains deadpan, intricate illustrated instructions on how to recreate Bove’s delicate sculptural assemblages, as one would receive when installing in the gallery space for exhibition. A very special and unique book for anyone interested in Carol Bove’s work. Edited by Carol Bove, with text by Charles Harlan

Bove’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at prominent institutions that include The Museum of Modern Art, New York; High Line at the Rail Yards, New York; The Common Guild, Glasgow (all 2013); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2010); Horticultural Society of New York (2009); Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, Texas (2006); Kunsthalle Zürich; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (both 2004); and Kunstverein Hamburg (2003).
