Provocative, sociologically attuned, at times outrageous, the work of the eight sculptors profiled in this catalogue goes beyond such easy labels as "conceptual", "New Objector", "Neo-Geo"; Annette Lemieux evokes history with a helmet or a vintage typewriter; her assemblages seem ghostlike fragments of a forgotten order. Katharina Fritsch makes manifest the dreamlike and otherworldly in the Madonna of Lourdes or her friendly, lifesize green Elephant . Jeff Koons cheerfully subverts Louis XIV statues, homey knickknacks and Dutch genre painting. Julian Opie's aluminum boxes, lit from within by fluorescent tubes, are eerie modern icons.
Artists include: Grenville Davey, Katharina Fritsch, Robert Gober, Jeff Koons, Annette Lemieux, Juan Munoz, Junian Opie, and Haim Steinbach.
