This monograph is the first to offer comprehensive insight into the highly expressive visual universe of Austrian artist Melli Ink's art. Ink creates vitreous worlds that blend beauty and cruelty, dread and fragility in a seductive fusion. The works are based on extensive series of drawings and executed in close collaboration with glassblowers, whose traditional techniques Melli Ink reinterprets for contemporary art. It also illustrates her playful engagement with various genres, including sculpture and installation art as well as drawing and performance. With an essay by Christoph Doswald, a conversation between Thomas Kiesewetter and the artist, and a preface by Uta Grosenick.
