Henry Moore: Ideas for Sculpture

A Project with Zaha Hadid

Edited by Gregor Muir. Text by Anne M. Wagner, Mary Moore, Matthew Collings.

Henry Moore: Ideas for Sculpture sheds new light on the work of Henry Moore (1898–1986), recording the much-admired contemporary architect Zaha Hadid's design of a display environment for the exhibition of Moore's sculptures and drawings. Hadid and Moore share a proclivity for fluid organic form, and for this project Hadid created curvaceous white linen walls and a giant horseshoe-shaped plinth. This volume collects the documentation of this adventurous installation, presenting reproductions of sculptures and sketches by Moore alongside Mary Moore's detailed account of their conception. It also includes an essay on the exhibition by writer and television presenter Matthew Collings, and a text by art historian Ann Wagner about Moore's works on paper, many of which were exhibited here for the first time. Ideas for Sculpture provides fresh perspective on the oeuvre of the late master, whose creative vision and presence in public life were key to the reception of modernity in England.

FROM THE BOOK
Henry Moore is no longer an electric name in art. Ideas for Sculpture was intended to recast him or rethink him for a new audience, partly in the direction of a “dark” Moore. For example, we saw a violent statue of a mother strangling her child instead of feeding it. To me it seemed strategically placed; almost a focus of the show. As opposed to absent-mindedly respecting an artist whose work had, for many, become only the sculptural equivalent of something like all the values of the National Trust, the audience is forced to ask, “Is the true stuff of existence the horrible?” And suddenly we’re on home turf as far as art-fashion at the moment is concerned. I wondered what was really on his mind when he made this work. Was it Giacometti’s “Woman with her Throat Cut,” or maybe the art of the Incas--or all of art and all of life? That would certainly be in keeping with his character and personality as revealed in his many eloquent published statements, which never remotely suggest an institutionalized or polite figure.—Matthew Collings, excerpted from Henry Moore: Ideas for Sculpture.
