Publisher's description: Canadian sculptor David Altmejd (born 1974) presents his large-scale Plexiglass installation The Flux and the Puddle, a multilayered, structural environment in which werewolves, smashed mirrors and sculpted heads are strategically placed. "I think of the big Plexiglas box as a kind of stage or a laboratory space," Altmejd explained to a reviewer for Art in America. "The work is operatic. It's basically about the making of sculpture. Everything you see was made from inside the box. Ideas germinated from the inside. I let the work evolve and grow as much as possible. There's very little that's premeditated; it's not pre-designed." This publication documents the artist's knack for inventing disorienting and complex architectural arrangements.
