I very much enjoyed seeing Phyllida Barlow’s exhibitions at Fruitmarket, Edinburgh in 2015, and at the Hepworth, Wakefield in 2016, so I was delighted to be asked to work with this much-respected artist. Best known for her colossal sculptural projects, Phyllida Barlow has had an important influence on younger generations of artists through her work and long teaching career in art schools. In 2017, Barlow represented Great Britain at the Venice Biennale.
Commissioned by Nicky and Robert Wilson for the tenth anniversary of Jupiter Artland, quarry brings together three monumental sculptural objects made from concrete and steel, each with Barlow’s signature textural surfaces, and located within the grounds of Jupiter Artland, just outside Edinburgh. This book documents the gestation of quarry and includes texts by the artist and Jupiter Artland director, Nicky Wilson; a contextualising essay by Jo Applin; and photographs by Allan Pollok-Morris, Anna Kunst, and Thierry Bal. The book also features Phyllida Barlow’s original working drawings for quarry.
Phyllida Barlow:quarry is the first publication in Jupiter Arland’s Artist Commission series.
