Reviewing in detail the singular collaborative oeuvre of a team of French artists whose evocative works draw on images of the past to illuminate links between cultural memory and personal identity, this catalogue features excellent pictorial documentation of diverse sculptural pieces and installations produced by Anne (b. 1942) and Patrick Poirier (b. 1942) from 1968 to 1993, including large-scale models of classical ruins and imaginary cities, casts of ancient sculpture, and extensive "archives" of texts, drawings, photographs and objects. Four critical essays discuss the interplay of archaeological and fictional elements in the couple's work and the contemporary issues informing their reconstruction and manipulation of emblems of past civilizations.
