Alina Szapocznikow
Sculpture Undone 1955 - 1972

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 effectively spanned less than two decades (cut short by the artist’s premature death in 1973 aged 47), Szapocznikow left behind a legacy of provocative objects that evoke Surrealism, Nouveau Realisme and Pop art. Her tinted polyester casts of body parts, often transformed into everyday objects like lamps or ashtrays; her poured polyurethane forms; and her elaborately constructed sculptures, which at times incorporated photographs, clothing or car parts, all remain as wonderfully idiosyncratic and culturally resonant today as when they were first made.
Well-known in Poland, where her work has been highly influential since early in her career, Szapocznikows compelling body of work is ripe for art-historical reexamination. “Alina Szapocznikow: Sculpture Undone, 1955-1972” offers a comprehensive overview of this important artists work at a moment when international interest is blossoming. Richly illustrated with over 150 colour plates, the catalogue features essays by the exhibition 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. Spanning one of the most rich and complex periods of the twentieth century, Szapocznikows oeuvre responds to many of the ideological and artistic developments of her time through artwork that is at once fragmented and transformative, sensual and reflective, playfully realized and politically charged.

The incredible Kai Althoff monograph published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Kai Althoff.
Text by Rita Kersting, DovBer Naiditch, Yair Oelbaum, Constantin Rothkopf, Robert Storr, Rein Wolfs. Interview by Laura Hoptman.

Kai Althoff is one of the most consummate–and unpredictable–artists of his generation. A painter and a draftsman, he has experimented since the mid-1990s with combinations of unconventional mediums and exhibition formats to create all-encompassing environments that might include finely detailed drawings, collage, woven textiles, knitted fabric, soft sculpture, paintings, writing, video, fragrance and song.

Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, this publication presents Althoff’s work in all mediums made over a 25-year career. Created in close collaboration with the artist, the book features lavish color reproductions of Althoff’s most significant works. Contributions by scholars, art professionals and friends of the artist offer multiple perspectives on Althoff’s iconographically rich work.

An incredible and beautiful book! Very highly recommended.
