Mark Dion: Theatre of the Natural World

Price

Date

Publisher

Format
Artists' Books
Genre
Monograph
Description

This publication focuses on five major works by the American conceptual artist Mark Dion (born 1961).

The five installations documented here incorporate diverse subjects: a scholar’s study invites us to unravel intricate drawings and models; a curator’s office displays the strange magic of obsolete things; the muddy banks of the Thames have also yielded their treasures for poetic display in a gigantic cabinet; while a Dickensian Curiosity Shop tempts us with the bizarre aura of American bric-a-brac. Each immersive environment is also a habitat, evoking the characters that observe, conserve or exploit the natural world.

Includes texts by Iwona Blazwick, Marion Endt-Jones, Chelsea Kinchin-Smith, Petra Lange-Berndt, Ben Luke, Magnus af Petersens, Candy Stobbs, Gilda Williams and features a short story by Andrea Barrett.

Hardcover, perfect-bound, colour.
