A lavishly illustrated book on the acclaimed visual artist, videographer, and filmmaker Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, whose exceptionally diverse body of work explores her haunting visions of the past, present and future..
Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster calls herself "a prisoner of literature." Through her work in spatial installations, video projection, and "apparitions" (performances), she has indeed told remarkable stories using unique and incredibly diverse methods.
This book features a new work by the artist - a labyrinth of staged rooms constructed to send viewers on a visceral journey through time and through cinematography, literature, and science. Like much of her work, this piece draws on the artist's own life. The book also offers an overview of Gonzalez-Foerster's career from her massive exhibit at the Tate Modern's Turbine Hall, in which she installed replicas of iconic sculptural works, bunk beds, and a science fiction film, to the book-populated habitats she constructed at the Hispanic Society of America.
Essays by leading art critics discuss Gonzalez-Foerster's use of cinema, literature, architecture, and music as a means of self-exploration and expression. The result is a magnificent and deeply personal overview of an artist grappling with time, literature, narrative, and identity.
