Publisher's description: he first monograph published in Japan on Leiko Ikemura, Ceramic Sculptures and Related Works traces the artist's path from the 1980s to her latest works in the solo exhibition, Leiko Ikemura: PIOON at the Vangi Sculpture Garden Museum. Over one hundred photographs, many of which are of installations, show the relationship between her sculptures and paintings. Since leaving Japan in 1972 and basing herself in Europe, Leiko Ikemura has worked in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, and drawing, in her ongoing exploration of the fundamental meaning of human existence. As well as featuring for the first time several poetic black-and-white photographs taken by the artist of her own sculptural pieces, the comprehensive text includes discussions of Ikemura's work by visual culture scholar Elisabeth Bronfen, art critics Donald Kuspit and Midori Matsui and Vangi Sculpture Garden Museum curator Keisuke Mori along with poets Elisabeth Plessen and Koichi Tanokura.
