Manuals 2010 - Carol Bove


Carol Bove (b. 1971) is known for her simple yet intricate assemblages of found and made objects. Carefully arranged on pedestals, elevated platforms, or directly against walls and ceilings, these yield unexpected, poetic, and multilayered meanings, which seem to derive from the composition of the objects rather than the inherent substance of the individual components. Using a wide range of materials, including books, driftwood, peacock feathers, metal, concrete, foam, and loans from other artists, Bove’s works are subtle assemblages resisting categorization despite their determined relationships with modernist display methods.

This beautifully designed book contains deadpan, intricate illustrated instructions on how to recreate Bove’s delicate sculptural assemblages, as one would receive when installing in the gallery space for exhibition. A very special and unique book for anyone interested in Carol Bove’s work. Edited by Carol Bove, with text by Charles Harlan
