Phyllida Barlow deconstructs contemporary sculpture—literally. After her breakout exhibition in 2010, the British artist scrapped her colossal works for parts, recycling their components for new sculptures. This resistance to the perceived permeance of art defines her oeuvre. At once intimidating and childlike, her monumental art, comprised of both industrial and household materials, reflects playfully on our relationship to our natural and human environments. This major retrospective collects both drawings and sculptures from across Barlow’s long and influential career, including impressive photographs of new installations as well as never-before-seen archival material of sculptures that have already been destroyed. The book underscores why Barlow is regarded as one of the most prominent artists in Britain today.
