les presses du réel
Mark Handforth -
First monograph devoted to the US-based British artist, known for his sculptures made from everyday objects and urban furniture. Benches, street lamps, street signs, Vespas, all find themselves re-presented, extracted from their original context and reinserted into exhibition or public spaces. With an interview with the artist and an essay by Mirjam Varadinis.
Mark Handforth (born 1969 in Hong Kong) is a sculptor based in Miami, Florida. He uses scrap or found objects and materials as well as he uses new materials to create a new art work. Some of his sculptures are related to drawing, like his neon pieces. Mark Handforth explains he conceives his shows like landscapes. Each work is autonomous but depending on the composition of the show, it can have a meaning but depending on the composition.
Edited by Mirjam Varadinis.
Interview of the artist and essay by Mirjam Varadinis.
