Now available: Mariele Neudecker – SEDIMENT

Mariele Neudecker is a German-born, Bristol-based artist working at the crossover of art and science. Her multimedia practice, which incorporates sculpture, video, painting and sound, explores topics including perception, the environment and visual politics. The nineteenth-century German romantic sublime is a source of inspiration, as is Neudecker’s work with scientists, both as a guest artist on the Arts at CERN programme and on her trips to the Arctic and elsewhere.

This major monograph, published following the first ‘SEDIMENT’ exhibition at Limerick City Gallery of Art and coinciding with a new iteration at Hestercombe, Somerset, presents more than 200 works from a 35-year-long career and features contributions from Greer Crawley, Professor Klaus Dodds, Dominic Gray, Ariane Koek, Pontus Kyander, Úna McCarthy, Professor Kerstin Mey, James Peto and Alice Sharp.

The publication has been released to coincide with an exhibition at Ikon gallery, Birmingham, UK, in autumn 2021. Read more

The publication, co-published by Ingleby, Edinburgh, and Anomie, London, features contributions by Barbara Paca, Professor Paget Henry, Kenneth M. Milton and Mary-Elisabeth Moore.

This major monograph, featuring essays by Dr Catriona McAra and Jane Neal, presents works spanning MccGwire’s career, from the unsettling textile works of the turn of the millennium through to the fantastical site-specific installation and interventions of her solo exhibition in 2020 at Harewood House, Leeds.
