Pre-order: Isabelle Albuquerque

Orgy for Ten People in One Body

$65

This volume documents a new series of sculptures by Los Angeles–based artist Isabelle Aluquerque (born 1981), presented as a complete set of 10 for the first time in an exhibition at Jeffrey Deitch in 2022–23. These works, an expressive and erotic form of self-portraiture based on the artist’s own body, rendered in materials ranging from fur, bronze and walnut to resin and rubber (with found materials such as a candle or a saxophone), combine intimate memories with history, mythology and posthumanist and feminist theories. 

 

Each chapter of Orgy for Ten People in One Body corresponds to one of the 10 sculptures with a palimpsest of reference images, process photos and installation views. The publication includes two conversations with Albuquerque, with Arthur Jafa and with Miranda July.
