  • About the Book

In the intricate wire sculptures of the German-born Venezuelan artist Gego (1912-94), lines are given new dimension, describing architectural space and engaging with the human body. Gego: Autobiography of a Line gathers key works from the artist's oeuvre, from her famed entropic sculpture of the '70s to the works on paper created at the end of her long career.


This fully illustrated publication is among the first to position Gego's work in a global context, and features texts by curator Chus Martínez, head of the Institute of Art of the FHNW Academy of Arts and Design in Basel, Switzerland; art historian Kaira Cabañas; and Gego's grandson, Daniel Crespin; as well as previously unpublished archival material. The book also includes "GEGO," a new poem by poet, artist and composer Anne Tardos, performing a linguistic intervention in Gego's work.
