Highly respected by her peers and hugely influential on the subsequent generation of artists, the British artist Helen Chadwick produced a wideranging body of work in a variety of media, which shifted from early institutional and architectural critique to operatic installations, and to photographic projects and sculptures. Stephen Walker looks behind this apparent variety, identifying a consistent range of interests - ranging from classical Greek through to sub-particle physics - that accompanied and supported Chadwick s realised work. Although she enjoyed significant critical attention in her lifetime, this is the first study to explore the rich archive which informed her oeuvre.

Critical of the impact that limiting political, philosophical and scientific constructions have on identity, Chadwick s work can offer insights into the relationship between body and space; self and world; art and science; artifice and nature; theory and practice; the creative self and the creative process. Dismantling and reassembling her ideas, this book combines a close reading of Chadwick s notebooks and research with broader speculation regarding their ongoing relevance for artistic and architectural work today.

Review:

Chadwick s innovations still startle, and Stephen Walker discusses brilliantly the processes of thinking and making that brought them into being. Marina Warner, writer and academic, University of Essex, UK
< br/> Helen Chadwick s personal archive has now been skilfully explored for the first time by Stephen Walker in this very welcome book. Mark Haworth-Booth, Honorary Research Fellow, Victoria and Albert Museum, and Senior Fellow, Royal College of Art, UK

Helen Chadwick s work has found in the linguistic elegance, intellectual probity and theoretical acumen of Stephen Walker the security it so richly deserves. --Andrew Benjamin, Professor of Philosophy and Jewish Thought, Monash University, Australia
