Liza Lou: Leaves of Glass1st Edition, 2001. NEAR FINE. 9.5 x 9 .5", 48 pp. Softcover exhibition catalog, bi-lingual text - an interview between curator, Selene Wendt and the Artist, in English/Norwegian. This survey presents a cross-section of Lou's work. The often life-size installations are stunning for their quirky and humorous beauty, and the sheer scope of her painstaking craftsmanship.
Liza Lou (born 1969) is an American visual artist best known for producing large-scale work in unlikely and tedious mediums, such as beads. Lou came to prominence with the 168-square-foot (15.6 m2) work "Kitchen" (1991-1996), a to-scale and fully equipped replica of a kitchen covered in beads. The work took five years to complete and was followed with "Back Yard" (1996-1999), for which Lou enlisted the help of volunteers to recreate grass in a 525-square-foot (48.8 m2) model of a backyard. "Kitchen" is in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and "Back Yard" is in the permanent collection of the Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain, Paris. Lou won the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2002 and is currently based out of South Africa, where she owns a studio
