Book Description

Aug. 30 2011 Clark Art Institute

The Ghanaian-born sculptor El Anatsui (b. 1944) is one of the most significant artistic innovators of our time, merging personal, local, and global concerns in his visual creations. By weaving together discarded aluminum tops from Nigerian liquor bottles, Anatsui creates large-scale sculptures called gawu ("metal" or "fashioned cloth" in Anatsui's native language) that demonstrate a fascinating interplay of color, shape, and fluidity. 

In an illustrated essay, Alisa LaGamma provides a brief history of El Anatsui's career and an analysis of his practice. The catalogue also includes a never-before-published conversation between noted artist and curator Chika Okeke-Agulu and Anatsui, as they discuss the themes of history, economy, sustainability, and identity explored within Anatsui's work. Dramatic photographs of the installations at the Clark provide a unique look at these immersive sculptures, including Intermittent Signals (2009) and Delta (2010), in the contemplative spaces of Stone Hill Center.
