Stan Douglas by Scott Watson( Book )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stan Douglas is a Canadian artist whose work combines traditional cinematic techniques with new technologies to produce remarkable images, often suggestive of repressed memories and forgotten histories. These visually complex works can vary from dramatic contemporary video portraits, to serene landscapes, to large installations which envelop the viewer in a sensual play of sound and images. From his early brief dramas for television depicting uncanny suburban encounters to his spectacular split-screen installation Der Sandmann, Douglas' work is layered with the artist's observations on social alienation and psychological states." "Canadian curator and writer Scott Watson surveys the artist's work in relation to late 20th-century aesthetics, politics and psychoanalysis while American artist Diana Thater conducts an in-depth interview on the sources behind Douglas' work. Carol J Clover, an expert on film and Nordic mythology, focuses on the fusion of film, psychoanalysis and fable in Der Sandmann. The Artist's Choice text is by French philosopher Gilles Deleuze from his 1967 essay 'Humour, Irony and the law which reflects on the issues of power and powerlessness also central to Douglas' art. The histories and ideas behind the artist's works are explained through project descriptions, notes and scripts in the Artist's Writings section, alongside an essay on the teleplays of Samuel Beckett and an interview with curator and critic Lynne Cooke."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diana Thater : the sympathetic imagination by Diana Thater( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than two decades, Diana Thater has been creating groundbreaking installations that build upon the basic visual language of film and video by integrating architecture, applied colour, and artificial and natural light. Depicting a range of natural phenomena, her work is largely organised around an exploration of the subjectivity of animals. This lavishly illustrated overview shows how Thater has radically re-envisioned both the ways in which film and video are deployed in site-related installations and the relationship between subject and object. Luminous images of eighteen projects such as 'China', 'Abyss of Light', 'knots + surfaces', and 'gorillagorillagorilla' are accompanied by quotes and fictional writings that have long served as Thater's touchstones. Also included is an interview with the artist and essays on a wide range of topics that Thater addresses in her work-from the history and politics of the Chernobyl disaster to beauty and Baroque architecture.0Exhibition: Los Angeles Country Museum of Art, USA (22.11.215-17.4.2016)
