Retuning perceptions in 'Fred Sandback: Vertical Constructions'

Fred Sandback's remarkable 1987 black yarn sculpture, “Untitled (Sculptural Study, Five-part Construction)” is reproduced from Fred Sandback: Vertical Constructions, new from David Zwirner Books. Combining archival photographs of Sandback’s important 1987 Münster show of the same name and new photographs of the works in 2016, this volume proves essayist Lisa Le Feuvre’s point, “In Fred Sandback’s hands a line becomes a sculpture that has the ability to retune perceptions. Once in the world, each of his works operates profoundly in the present.… Sandback’s sculptures cannot be reduced, cannot be pared back; there is nothing extraneous. In each instance, you are invited to make the sculpture your own. Each work defies documentation.” True, the in-person experience of Sandback’s work is almost psychedelically two- and three-dimensional at once. But this photograph does a pretty good job.
