Out There: Arik Levy
Out There gives an overview of Arik Levy's outdoor creations. Concerned with manufacturing processes and industrial forms, Levy's works are informed by the materials he adopts, some of these taking shape as highly polished metal sculptures, and outdoor rock works with shooting shards of metal. The constraints of these industrial forms in relation to the ideology of nature and natural materials opens another line of investigation permeating his practice.

Experimental Eating
Profiling a range of culinary pioneers working across the fields of art, science, theatre, catering and design, Experimental Eating demonstrates how current creative collaborations are pushing the boundaries of how we understand, experience and relate to food and the rituals of dining. The book encompasses unusual and cutting-edge foods, radical dining events, kitchen laboratory experiments, food sculptures and other documentation of the transient moments that make up this field of experimentation. A selection of short essays situate these contemporary practices alongside various historical and cultural contexts, including: a history of food in modern and contemporary art, such as Gordon Matta-Clarke's FOOD cafe, Rikrit Tiravanija's FREE and Pad Thai events, and Grizedale Arts and Yangjiany Group's makeshift cafe for Frieze Projects 2012; a study of the connections between dining, theatre and ritual; and a survey of recent research in science and technology, and how this may impact on how we make, eat and perceive food.

Arik Levy: Art
Arik Levy: Art, published as a sister volume to a forthcoming book on Levy's design, encompasses the last ten years of the Israeli born, Paris-based, practitioner's output. Artist, technician, photographer, designer and filmmaker, Levy's skills and indeed outlook are entirely multidisciplinary, whilst his work can be seen in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. Influenced by Arte Povera, he is comparable to Anish Kapoor and Jeff Koons in sharing an exploration of advanced manufacturing processes within his work, often taking the form of highly polished metal structures. Yet Lev y is distinctly committed to an ideology of nature and natural materials despite his working with the constraints of industrial forms and manufacturing processes. Indeed he considers himself more of a feeling artist, this tactile association with nature fostered perhaps by his background and time spent in different corners of the globe. To that extent, perhaps his harmonious approach disseminates his interest in the difficulties of categorisation within areas of the arts, where objects, critiqued in often abstract terms, as being either 'design' or 'art' are judged differently in terms of value, both financial and critical. In part this argument is addressed in the separation of his work into two volumes, with the second, companion volume Arik Levy: Design, being published next season.

Make Build Create: Sculpture Projects for Children
Make, Build, Create is an easy to follow, beautifully illustrated collection of hands-on sculptural activities and projects for children. Make, Build, Create provides the opportunity for children of all ages and abilities to develop their artistic abilities and fulfill an enjoyment of creating through art. Children are encouraged to explore how they might transform a wide variety of natural and man-made materials through a series of open-ended projects. Inspiration is taken from architecture, landscapes, figures, and objects in the everyday environments around us. These carefully selected activities enable children to learn sculptural techniques such as casting, carving and construction while making personal sculptural artworks.Make, Build, Create has project ideas for all abilities, and encourages a playful attitude to exploring materials and sculpture. The book will appeal to children (and their parents!) aged 6 upwards wanting new projects to try at home, and also to teachers and facilitators for use in a more formal education setting.The author, Paula Briggs, co-founder and director of visual arts education charity AccessArt, has extensive experience conducting sculpture workshops with children of all ages. The projects included in Make, Build, Create involve her expertise in broadening children's artistic horizons and building confidence in their new skills. Paula Briggs is the best-selling author of Drawing Projects for Children (Black Dog Publishing, March 2015).

Sculpture Shock: Site specific interventions in subterranean, ambulatory and historic contexts
Revealing the processes and production of nine artists during the ground breaking Sculpture Shock award (2013-2015) for temporary site-specific interventions. It took sculpture out of the often clinical confines of the gallery space and into non-traditional environments, with a view to reintegrating art into everyday life.The site-specific interventions took the form of installation, performance, socially engaged and object-based work in media as diverse as light, sound and text into unusual sites: subterranean (the unseen world beneath our city), ambulatory (without physical confines in movement through space and time) and historic (an illustrious building in London). This richly illustrated publication is contextualised throughout by: Dave Beech, writer, curator and Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art; Richard Cork, British art historian, editor, critic and broadcaster; and Sarah Kent, former visual arts editor of Time Out and the ICA's Director of Exhibitions.

I Am I Between Worlds and Between Shadows
During the last decade, the work of Greek-born artist Kalliopi Lemos exposed the wounding of human dignity. Most of her recent international projects addressed the hardships and mistreatments thousands of undocumented migrants are suffering in their effort to find somewhere to live. In her latest exhibition I Am I Between Worlds and Between Shadows showing September 2013 in Istanbul, Lemos focuses on women's experiences and the frequent abuse of their self-respect. The artist believes that human dignity is an inherent quality and an essential part of every human being, but unfortunately reality is very different as women still face, and still have to put up with, behavior that is insulting, wounding, oppressive and overpowering. The exhibition consists of an installation that features seven evocative sculptures that refer to the brutal violations directly or indirectly affecting all women and short videos that contain fragmented images from the female unconscious, enhancing the metaphorical origin of the works. Kalliopi Lemos' exhibition transcends the deadening global saturation of images, and demonstrates the lasting power of the imagination to create resonant, visceral images, that speak directly to the heart of the viewer, and to the core of social malaise. She delves into a world of alchemy, myth and dream to conjure up figures that force us to engage with and re-evaluate our understanding of the world, of how it is represented to us, and of women's place within it.

In the Aura of a Hole
In The Aura of a Hole explores the work of A Laurie Palmer an artist, writer, and teacher. Her work is concerned, most immediately, with resistance to privatisation, and more generally, with theoretical and material explorations of matter's active nature as it asserts itself on different scales and at different speeds. Her work takes various forms - as sculpture, installation, public projects, and writing. This publication focuses specifically on a decade-long project Palmer undertook - an extended exploration of mineral extraction sites in the US. Through her narration, the project discusses themes of the raw scientific and mechanical aspects of the industry, alongside environmental justice, First Nation rights, industrial agriculture, chemical weapons, low temperature physics, the Cold War, the Iraq War, biotechnology, bio geochronology, nanotechnology, Homeland Security, globalised trade, global warming and unemployment. Palmer has shown her work, both independently and with the four-person art collective Haha, at national and international venues since 1988, and has published writing since 1986. Palmer teaches in the Sculpture Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her works are in the collections of institutions such as the City of Linz, Austria; the Smart Museum of Art, Chicago; The University of Chicago; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the University Galleries, Illinois State.

The Surgeon and the Photographer
The Surgeon and the Photographer profiles the complete collection of Geoffrey Farmer's paper and fabric sculptures in his seminal installation of the same name. The book lavishly reproduces all 365 figures, which correspond to portraits of days of the year and are each compelling and unique. Taking cues from literature, theatre and cinema, Farmer's meticulously constructed characters are composed of tiny photographic fragments that are snipped from second-hand books and magazines, then mounted onto fabric forms with metal stands. The figures have a complexity that provides an animated quality and many cast unexpected shadows that deepen the dimension of character and generate an eccentric vitality. Produced over a four-year period, the work blends the collage and assemblage traditions of Hannah Hoch and Robert Rauschenberg, the element of chance employed by John Cage and Merce Cunningham, and an animist perspective from Pacific Northwest Coast cultures.Its title, The Surgeon and the Photographer, refers to Walter Benjamin's seminal 1936 essay The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, in which Benjamin compares the magician and the surgeon, then makes an analogy to the work done by the painter and the cameraman. Farmer believes in material exploration and physical production as a form of research, which allows the work to maintain a playful and appealing quality. Taking a process-orientated approach, the artist draws on storytelling, popular culture, history and literature to construct an interesting and poetic reflection on photography, process and reproduction.

Celia Scott
Celia Scott attempts to rescue public sculpture from its exclusively classical connotations, while at the same time employing the visual and formal language of classical method. The resulting work sets itself apart from the current architectural and artistic landscape, highlighting moments in the collective memory against the backdrop of modern experience. This classical approach chooses strange subjects, indeed most of Scott's sitters were influenced by, and influential in, the modernist movement in architecture. Alan Colquhoun opens this volume with a critical look at public sculpture and Scott's place within, and outside of, its limits. In a characteristically robust analysis, Colquhoun examines the psychological and physical origins of Scott's practice, and relates her work to the history and meaning of public sculpture. Celia Scott profiles some of the artist's best-known heads, from Eduardo Paolozzi to Colin St. John Wilson, with both a rigorous discussion of their aesthetic nature, and the engaging narrative surrounding their creation.

What about Power?
What about Power? is the second book in our three part Inquiries into Contemporary Sculpture series, which explores a range of thematics within the field of contemporary sculptural art. What about Power? draws together a range of perspectives that examine the contemporary intersections of power and sculpture. From ritual to monument, sculpture is embedded within various power dynamics, whether political, spiritual, erotic, or otherwise. Sculpture's relationship to power is distinct, as it is engaged with particular spatial and physical realms hinged on considerations of architecture and the body. The book reflects on themes of will, subjugation, desire, fetish, scale, and reflects on the way these relationships have shifted throughout time. The contributors to this publication speak to where they stand now, asking, what are the power dynamics around sculpture today? Comprising essays, short reflections and images throughout, What about Power? is a comprehensive and insightful exploration, with contributions from an international assemblage of artists, writers, art historians and curators working in the field.

Liliana Moro: Moi
The Fondazione Antonio Ratti's Advanced Course in Visual Arts (CSAV) is conceived as an experimental lab for art and theory guided by an artist who, each year, shares his or her thinking and artistic practice with participating young artists. The eighteenth summer school took place in 2012 with Liliana Moro as Visiting Professor. Moro's work uses sculpture, sound, objects and performance to explore concepts of individual and collective experience, of artist and viewer. Her exhibition at the church of San Francesco in Como, Moi, produced in conjunction with the summer school, is a site-specific sound piece in which the words of the artist evoke the movement of two bodies, proceeding according to a rhythmic score of pauses and accelerations. What appears to be the description of an action, produces in its listeners an awkward sensation of dilation and contraction of perception, of the comprehension of the spoken words, and of time in general. In Moi the visitor passes from observer to observed, entering a circle of sound. The resulting book explores concepts of freedom and sharing spaces, thoughts and actions arising from this installation and the workshops and seminars that accompanied it.

Navigating in the Dark
Kalliopi Lemos is a Greek sculptor, painter and installation artist. Lemos' work explores various themes, of which the narrative of journeys, displacement and the politics of forced migration are central. She has exhibited her work internationally. Navigating in the Dark: Kalliopi Lemos documents a series of exhibitions of Lemos' work at three international venues: Benaki Museum, Athens, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete, Rethymnon and the Crypt of St Pancras Church, London. The three exhibitions were a culmination of Lemos' work over the past ten years, each exhibiting large-scale installations exploring themes of physical and spiritual migration. Navigating in the Dark presents full-color images of the installations, depicting them alongside each other for the first time. Alongside photographic documentation, three essays explore Lemos' work and methodology. Arthur C Danto has discussed each installation in depth, relating them to wider themes, in his essay A Sculptural Navigation ; meanwhile, Jim Fitzgerald carefully observes each of the installations and their particular qualities, relating Lemos' work to her Greek heritage, whilst Simon Critchley presents the wider themes of the artist's work from a philosophical viewpoint in Watergazing with Kalliopi Lemos.

Amnesiac Hide
Mike Nelson's newly commissioned installation, commissioned on behalf of Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, and The Power Plant, Toronto, presents its audience with the notion of the lone traveller. Drawing on archetypes such as the fur trapper, the pioneering explorer, the Beatnik and the biker, Mike Nelson offers a new reading of the lone traveller, focusing on the significance of these characters in the context of masculinity and spirituality. Nelson is best known for his architectural installations, which unfold as narrative structures, where the viewer moves through seemingly abandoned rooms devoid of figures. This publication will draw out Nelson's frequent return to the figure, namely the archetypal lone wanderer, who underlays much of his work whether as an implied trace or as sculptural assemblages. While drawing from a wide range of Nelson's work, the book will spotlight The Amnesiacs, a serial work begun by the artist in 1996 and revisited for these exhibitions through two new commissions. To accompany this new body of work, which comprises Nelson's first solo shows in Canadian institutions, the artist is also producing an ambitious publication that presents developmental imagery alongside installation shots of the new installations.

Who Cares?: Inquiries Into Contemporary Sculpture
Who Cares?, the fourth in the Inquiries into Contemporary Sculpture series, examines issues of reception and care in contemporary sculpture. The book is a provocation into the complex conditions of caring in contemporary art and sculpture. Perhaps first directed to the viewer of an artwork, Who Cares? asks about audience engagement as well as the critical reception of sculpture. What is particular to sculpture and its viewers? And what is particular to sculpture and criticism? Further, the question leading this volume interrogates artisticcommitment to sculpture as a discipline as well the perimeters of institutional departments, beginning with disciplinary definitions and extending to the realms of exhibition practices and conservation concerns.Who Cares? points to the range of responsibilities that objects engender, collating perspectives about why we care, why we don't care, who should care, and who shouldn't care. Once brought into this world, objects demand our attention, and this book delves into the different ways this may take form, digging into sculptural concerns from the process of making to displaying to maintaining. Who Cares? features contributions from leading and emerging voices in the field, including Kelly Akashi, Sam Anderson, Aaron Angell, Leonor Antunes, Karen Archey, Eva Barois De Caevel, Jenny Jaskey, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Helen Marten, Laura McLean-Ferris, Manuela Moscoso, Kate Newby, Britta Peters, Kari Rittenbach and Rayyane Tabet. This book follows the first three titles produced in partnership with SculptureCenter: Where is Production?, What About Power? and How Does it Feel?.
