The American artist Fred Sandback became famous in the 1970s for his sculptures made of coloured acrylic yarn, which he used to rewrite geometric bodies or to impact upon spatial situations.
This catalogue presents for the first time a broad selection of Sandback’s works on paper, drawings and prints. This provides impressive evidence of how Sandback has seamlessly transferred the classic techniques of lithography, etching and woodcuts into the aesthetics of his time and retraced the development process of his sculptures in his prints.
