This double volume devoted to Yves Dana, a Swiss sculptor of Egyptian descent, is the ideal continuation of a 2015 publication by 5 Continents Editions. His sculptures present themselves to contemporary viewers as if they were the archaeological finds of ancient civilisations, and it is possibly from this very trait that they derive their extraordinary strength.
The chronological narrative follows the works created by Dana since 2017 and calls the reader's attention to the dialogue between the artist and his medium, which finds its voice in the creative process. In the interview with Marc-Alain Ouaknin included in this volume, it becomes clear that to Yves Dana his task is first and foremost observing what nature has to say - observing with his eyes, but also with his hands.
