Berlinde De Bruyckere: In the Woods there were Chainsaws

£100.00

Product description

"For this book, I did not choose the texts, they came by chance, closely interwoven with my work. In this book I bring together sculptures of the past two years, wherein tree, man, metamorphoses are the subject. While selecting the images, or rather arranging them, I discovered the 'great diversity' with which each sculpture portrays this subject matter. ...My sculptures generate themselves, they each portray their hunger for existence and the toil of their coming into being. But eventually they stand alone, revealing their existential solitude." - A Consideration on the Choice of Texts and the Title by Berlinde De Bruyckere

This book is the first to bring together De Bruyckere's much celebrated wax sculptures of the human form with her more recent renderings of tress and branches. Bringing these works together in one beautiful volume, the illustrations do justice to the breathtaking detail of the sculptures and succeed in conveying the devastating impact of these works when seen in the flesh.
This edition is in very good condition. Some slight bumping and shelf-wear. Inside, text and illustrations are clean and unmarked.
