  • A beautifully produced artist’s book that introduces the series of work entitled Alltag/ Everyday Life and Passage by the German sculptor Carol Pilars de Pilar
Full Description

Düsseldorf-based sculptor Carol Pilars de Pilar (b. 1961) addresses fundamental questions of how we live in our world, and how we see ourselves and others. Her work exudes a humanistic sympathy for her subjects and their relationship to the world. This book, which documents her series entitled Alltag/Everyday Life and Passages, combines sculptures, texts, and images to create a multifaceted large-scale art installation. Mounted on concrete plinths and slender steel supports, the artist has created clay figurines that are representative of society in all its breadth and diversity. In interviews that address the key issues our society faces today, she spoke to six people, recording and transcribing their answers. In conjunction with the collages and sculptures, they contribute to the associative web of meanings her work evokes.

Text in English and German.
