Sidsel Meineche Hansen Metal Works

Edited by Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen
Poems by Diego Marcon
Design by Teo Schifferli

2024, English, softcover, 16.5 x 22 cm, 96 pages
ISBN: 979-12-80579-40-9

This new book is a complete survey of the cast, forged, and fabricated metal sculptures made by Danish artist Sidsel Meineche Hansen since 2017. The artist’s practice addresses the industrial complex of virtual and robotic bodies and their relationship to labor in tech, pornography and gaming. While some sculptures were conceived as individual pieces, others were created with digital counterparts within installations that typically include CGI animation, documentary video, drawing and prints.

By presenting the metal works as stand-alone pieces, this book adheres to Meineche Hansen’s concern with the material means of production, highlighting their concrete yet elusive nature. Several pieces in the publication are accompanied by poems written by artist Diego Marcon in response to the works. As an artist’s project and an archival document, the publication echoes the tradition of documentary photography devoted to sculpture.
