The meticulous and macabre sculptures of Kate MacDowell. "These pieces are in part responses to environmental stressors including climate change, toxic pollution, and gm crops. They also borrow from myth, art history, figures of speech and other cultural touchstones. In some pieces aspects of the human figure stand-in for ourselves and act out sometimes harrowing, sometimes humorous transformations which illustrate our current relationship with the natural world. ..."
Alicia Martín, Biografias - a series of giant sculptures in which books seem to pour out of three buildings’ windows — but it is as weird as anything else on this list, and so wonderful that we’ll use any excuse to give it a shout out. Behold, the life-changing power of literature! I would love to have this kind of sculpture at my school!
