Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Sheela Gowda's art resides within a space between the local and the global. Her sculptural installations are comprised of such simple materials as cow dung and ash, but each piece is undeniably monumental in its scale and content. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Sculptor Sheela Gowda builds her installations from profoundly humble materials, including cow dung, incense ash and the tar drums used as temporary homes by road workers in India. She originally trained as a painter at the Royal College of Art in London, and turned to sculpture during the Bombay riots of 1992. In response to the rise of Hindu fundamentalism, she began incorporating substances and processes from traditional Indian culture: cow dung, for instance, has sacred implications but is also used as a domestic cooking fuel and building material. The resulting work blurs the line between fine art and craft, and between creative, political, and domestic spaces. This first comprehensive monograph includes two interviews with the artist, whose work has been seen at the Walker Art Center and the Asia Society.
