Constructed almost entirely of paraffin wax, “Julian” is one of Swiss artist Urs Fischer’s most ambitious wax-candle sculptures to date. This large-format artist’s book is composed entirely of photographs documenting Fischer’s 2015 show in Amagansett, New York, where the life-size sculpture–made to resemble fellow artist Julian Schnabel–was exhibited and then set alight.
