For this project, Irish artist Alan Phelan (born 1968) took italicized words from Slovenian philosopher Slavoj i ek's Fragile Absolutes: Why is the Christian Legacy Worth Fighting For? and used them associatively towards 15 ideas for works realized in a variety of materials and processes, from handcarved marble to video and papier-mâché sculpture.

Book Description Edizioni Charta Srl, Italy, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a superbly illustrated look at the Fragile Absolutes project from renowned Irish artist Alan Phelan. Alan Phelan (b. 1968) is known for his complex works which create relationships between quite disparate elements of political history, cultural theory, popular culture, science fiction, and modified cars. Featuring more than 200 full-colour and black-and-white illustrations, this new volume is an illuminating document of his Fragile Absolutes project. The title of the project refers to the work by the Slovenian sociologist, philosopher, and cultural critic Slavoj Zizek, The Fragile Absolute - or, why is the Christian legacy worth fighting for? Phelan took the italicized words from the text and used them as random word associations to help create 15 ideas for new works realized in a variety of materials and processes, from hand-carved marble, through to video and papier mache sculpture.
