RICHARD SERRA: FORGED SCULPTURE. David Zwirner, New York, 2016. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 144 pp. 30 x 24 cm. ISBN 9781941701171 In English.
Publisher's description: Published on the occasion of Richard Serra's (born 1939) 2015 exhibition Equal at David Zwirner, New York, this catalogue is the first in-depth overview of the artist's works in forged steel. While he had already become known for his works in vulcanized rubber, lead and steel, Serra first began using forged steel after encountering a large-scale forge at a steel mill in Germany in 1977. Unlike casting, wherein steel is heated until molten and poured into a mold, forging is the process of changing metal's shape while in a solid state, through extreme heat and pressure. Serra's first forged sculpture was "Berlin Block for Charlie Chaplin" (1977), installed outside of the Mies van der Rohe-designed Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. Since then, he has continued to use this material in different configurations and formats to create works that use forged blocks, rounds or lintels.
