SKIRA Editore. Evan Penny: Ask Your Body

Created in collaboration with the artist's exhibition at the 2017 Venice Biennale and supported by the Art Gallery of Alberta and the Curia Patriarcale di Venezia, Evan Penny: Ask Your Body features new works - sculptures and photographs - from this internationally-acclaimed Canadian artist.

Evan Penny's (b. 1953) hyperrealistic sculptures are firmly rooted in the artist's longstanding interest in the human body and on how viewers perceive and experience their relationship with themselves and others. While the artist has expanded his sculptural repertoire to include references to art from other eras, Evan Penny: Ask Your Body primarily emphasizes the visceral manner in which viewers experience the works, with monumentally-scaled sculptures best described as meditations on the condition of being human.
