This book explores the latest work from Berlin and Toronto based conceptual artist An Te Liu. This publication documents the latest artist intervention commissioned by the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art with new work by conceptual artist An Te Liu. Drawing inspiration from artefacts found in the museum's Ancient America's collection, Liu has created slip-cast sculptures transformed out of Styrofoam packing. These enigmatic works are poised between the material and immaterial, thing and no-thing. While mono is Japanese for 'object', ma is a more elusive term referring to 'space' or 'gap', but one which is simultaneously aware of form and non-form. The accompanying essay places An Te Liu's work in contemporary art theory and practice. An Te Liu is a Canadian artist based in Toronto and Berlin. His work is included in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Gallery of Ontario.
