Douglas Gordon : Pretty Much Every Film and Video Works from About 1992 Until Now
In this artist's-book-cum-career-survey, Scottish video artist Douglas Gordon (born 1966) collects more than 100 stills from his acclaimed films and video installations--designing them as bound postcards that can be removed and used. In the exhibition this volume acompanies, the artist piled 101 monitors atop each other, along with beer crates and stacks of books, to present 82 visual works in a single, nonhierarchical reenvisioning of his oeuvre. Including iconic works such as "24 Hour Psycho" (1993), "Between Darkness and Light (After William Blake)" (1997) and "Play Dead; Real Time" (2003), along with many of his most recent works, the exhibition and this volume offer a unique, imaginatively realized survey. Gordon provides concise and illuminating notes on the work illustrated on the verso of each card.
