and interviews in this issue of Sculpture explore the context of
sculpture, or perhaps sculpture as context. Installation art above all
creates an environment for the viewer, a space activated by the artist.
Liza Lous beaded works present a phantasmagoric transformation of
the everyday world. Fred Wilson demonstrates the underlying strategies
and biases of cultural institutions, forcing us to pay attention to what
is presented as cultural artifact and how it is presented. Ann Hamiltons
installations are overwhelming sensory experiences, plumbing the history
and the tangible reality of the sites in which she works. Jim Toia, seeking
an organic sculptural form, focuses our attention on natural phenomena
and materials. Costantino Nivola, on the other hand, uses the most elemental
forms of sculpture, carving stone and modeling terra cotta, rather than
the strategies of installation art, to draw the viewer into an intimate
confrontation with his monumental or private works. Also in this issue:
articles and reviews on artists from Canada, South Africa, Italy, France,
Israel, Austria, China, and the United States."
