Summary
"This volume was designed in collaboration with Rodney Graham and Yves Gevaert in conjunction with an exhibition of around one hundred pieces produced by the Canadian artist between 1978 and 2009. Graham (*1949 in Vancouver) uses a variety of media in these works, including books, video, sculptures, machines, paintings, photographs, installations, prints, and music; takes up key concepts of art history; and plays with problems of perception. His works require viewers to come up with art-historical or theoretical associations. Graham derives his source material from Sigmund Freud, Edgar Allan Poe, Georg Buchner, Jeff Wall, and many others, while at the same time dealing with them in a respectful, yet ironic manner. One extensive group of works is based on the artist's own unconventional library, and offers annotations, appendices, bookmarks, reading compendiums, as well as display furniture making stylistic reference to Donald Judd. This catalogue also features Graham's paintings, which explore the myths surrounding classic modern painters such as Picasso and other masters."--Publisher's website
