From Workplace to Artwork
Paperback      ISBN: 3943365301

The artist's house is a prism through which to view not only the artistic practice of its inhabitant, but also to apprehend broader developments in sculpture and contemporary art in relation to domestic architecture and interior space. Based on a series of interviews and site visits with living artists about the role of their home in relation to their work, Kirsty Bell looks at the house as receptacle, vehicle, model, theater, or dream space. In-depth analyses of these contemporary examples--including Jorge Pardo, Miroslaw Balka, Danh Vo, Gregor Schneider, Frances Stark, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Pawel Althamer, Mark Leckey, Monika Sosnowska, Gabriel Orozco, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Andrea Zittel--are contextualized by key artists of the twentieth century such as Kurt Schwitters, Alice Neel, Edward Krasiński, Carlo Mollino, and Louise Bourgeois. A two-way flow from the domestic arena to the exhibition space becomes apparent, in which the everyday has a significant role to play in the merging of such developments as installation art, relational aesthetics, expanded collage, and performance art.

On Making Art & Being an Artist
Paperback      ISBN: 1786891174
A rallying cry for artists.

When Kent Nerburn received a letter from a young woman questioning a life in the arts, the writer and artist was struck by how closely her questions mirrored the doubts and yearnings of his own youth. So Nerburn resolved that he would write his own letter: one of welcome and encouragement to all young artists setting out on the same strange and magical journey, sharing the wisdom of a life spent working in the arts.

From struggles with money and the bitterness of rejection, to spiritual questions of inspiration and authenticity, On Making Art & Being an Artist offers insight, solace, and courage to help young artists on the winding road to creative fulfilment. Tender and joyous, it is a celebration of art's power to transform the human experience.
