This is a mid-career retrospective of the renowned New York-based artist Heide Fasnacht. Featuring a remarkable collection of her work, the book tracks Heide Fasnacht's relentless drive and passion over the past decade of sustained production. By turning her attention to instability in all its realms--political, atmospheric, geologic, molecular, social, psychological--Fasnacht has created, in the mediums of sculpture and drawing, a kind of poetics of catastrophe. A number of unsettling works made prior to September 11, 2001--of an airliner exploding in midair, of collapsing high rises, of an imploding wall in Lower Manhattan--already inhabit the post 9/11 universe in which the potential for massive death and destruction seems to be lurking around every corner. The book includes essays by playwright and art collector Edward Albee and Raphael Rubenstein, senior editor of Art in America.
