Barbara Chase-Riboud: Infinite Folds
Serpentine has co-published a catalogue with Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther und Franz König to celebrate Barbara Chase-Riboud’s first institutional solo exhibition in the UK, Infinite Folds (Serpentine North, 11 October 2022 – 10 April 2023). This book features new scholarship from a diverse group of writers and arts practitioners, offering new, insightful perspectives on Chase-Riboud’s extraordinary career. You can now purchase the publication here.
With a career spanning over seven decades, Chase-Riboud’s innovation in sculptural technique and materiality is characterised by the interplay between folds of cast bronze or aluminium and coils of wool and silk which are knotted, braided, looped, and woven. Combining materials with different qualities such as hard and soft, light against heavy, and tactile versus rigid, the artist’s monumental sculptures and works on paper consider notions of memory, legacy and power.
Richly illustrated and designed by Pacific, this catalogue includes contributions from Gus Casely-Hayford, Joseph Manca, Erin L. Thompson, Yesomi Umolu, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, as well as an interview between Chase-Riboud and Serpentine Artistic Director Hans Ulrich Obrist. The publication also features an extensive chronology as well as a selection of the artist’s own poetry and writing.
