Text by Claudia Schmuckli, Johanna Burton
Whether casting paints and ink into sculpture, or using using marble, concrete, porcelain, or photographs for painterly purposes, Argentinian artist Analia Saban has stretched the limits of material and media in often unexpected ways to probe for meaning. Her concern is for the component materials from which art is made, and her explorations have teased out the hidden ideological and political repercussions of those materials and the forms they take.
This book documents Saban's first solo museum survey, at the Blaffer Art Museum, an exhibition that presents ten years of the artist's deep investigation into the possibilities of any medium. Her work is presented here in extensive illustrations, alongside major new texts on the artist from Johanna Burton and exhibition curator Claudia Schmuckli.
