"Using the sculpture of Isamu Noguchi and the setting of his titular museum as a point of departure, this book looks at the various ways artists from across the world have explored the place of rock and stone in human culture, taking inspiration from American-born artist Jimmie Durham's opinion that sculpture and architecture in the West "denature" stone. Photography of the artworks installed in The Noguchi Museum beautifully represents the unique and thoughtful meeting of Isamu Noguchi's sculpture with that of contemporary artists and ancient examples from East and West"-- Provided by publisher.
