Jean-Pierre Greff and Lida von Mengden analyse in detail the work of the French sculptor of Czech origin, Vladimir Skoda (Prague, 1942): his first confrontations in 1973 with Arte Povera, the influence of minimalism and conceptualism, the French movement «Supports-Surfaces», the work of César and Fontana, the transformation of matter, working with iron and steel, manual hammering on an anvil, the use of the mechanical forging press, the long road towards the spherical shape, his interest in cosmology, Etienne-Louis Boullée and Foucault's pendulum, virtual spaces and movement…
These two studies are followed by an extensive interview between the artist and Henri van de Leemput. In addition, over 250 illustrations, a detailed biography and exhaustive bibliography make this the complete reference work on one of the most remarkable sculptors of the past 25 years.
