Not Vital: ScarchNot Vital: Scarch

Published by Hauser & Wirth Publishers.
Text by Not Vital, Giorgia von Albertini, Philip Jodidio, Akhmed Haïdera.

A clothbound appraisal of the Swiss artist's enigmatic architecture-sculptures, driven by his longstanding impulse to construct shelters

This stylishly produced book documents the architecture-sculptures of Swiss artist Not Vital's (b. 1948) vast oeuvre. Throughout the world, Vital has worked on a series of grand works that skirt the boundary between sculpture and architecture.

Driven by an impulse to build shelters that he traces back to childhood, Vital has traveled to Niger, Chile, Belgium, Brazil, Indonesia and the Philippines to construct responsive habitats that integrate themselves into the communities in which they are built. For example, his House to Watch the Sunset, a tower-like structure that is at once ancient and futuristic, is built out of local materials sourced in Brazil, Niger and Switzerland.

In addition to these projects, Not Vital: Scarch contains sketches for structures, srudio shots, concepts for future works and sculptures related to the projects.

Published by Kerber.
Edited by Alma Zevi, Christian Rümelin. Text by Christian Rümelin, Not Vital, Alma Zevi.

Although working mainly as asculptor, Swiss-born artist Not Vital (born 1948) has produced a sizeable body of works on paper, especially prints, drawings and multiples. These works, which continue the abstract explorations of his sculpture in a looser idiom, often include discrete hand-drawn captions.
