Adrián Villar Rojas (Phaidon Contemporary Artists)
Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Eungie Joo
The first book to explore the fascinating career and fantasy-driven worlds created by the acclaimed Argentinean artist.
Adrián Villar Rojas’s works concoct imaginary realms. Usually made from clay, his colossal installations are transitory and so cannot be collected, as they disappear or decay over time. His practice confronts the public with ideas of obsolescence and extinction, but also with the possibilities of humankind and its endless imagination. This is the first book to include all of Villar Rojas’ most significant projects, featured in international biennials such as Venice, Documenta, Shanghai, and others.
