Reproducing over 200 works on paper from the past fifty years, this book presents a crucial part of the British sculptor’s artistic practice. A never- before-published interview between the artist and Hans Ulrich Obrist provides insight into drawings that are not preparations but rather, daily exercises done before, during and after the creation of her sculptures. Unlike sculptures from her early career that have not been preserved, Barlow’s works on paper stretch back to the early nineteen-sixties when she was a student at Chelsea College of Art. This new publication, thus, charts a career-long commitment to artistic inquiry of a vanguard of contemporary art.
