PLEASE SEND THIS BOOK TO MY MOTHER: SARAH ENTWISTLE. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 172 pp. with 152 ills. (42 col.). 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783956791536 In English.
This book was published to coincide with an exhibition of Entwistle's sculptural works mounted in 2015 at the Foundation Le Corbusier in Paris, a show titled "He Was My Father and I Was an Atom Destined to Grow into Him," but does not specifically document the show. Publisher's description: London-based artist-architect Sarah Entwistle's artist's book, Please send This Book to My Mother reconfigures the traditional architectural monograph and artist biography to create an ambiguous portrait of her grandfather, architect Clive Entwistle (1916-1976). The result is a fascinating narrative welding fragments of extremely personal reflections and extensive visual material. Clive Entwistle was an autodidact who described his cardinal points as: Philosophy, Architecture, Intellect, and Sex. He tackled utopian city plans, product design, structural engineering, formal experimentation and architectural critique and his proposal for the Crystal Palace (1946) was described by LeCorbusier as "one of the great projects of our time." However, none of his ambitious proposals was realized, his presence erased from the landscape of modernism. Sarah Entwistle's evocative rendition of his life in this beautifully designed and extensively illustrated book provokes questions on the authority of the biographer and reaches beyond genres into the realm of poetry and prose fiction.
