This sophisticated artist’s book, with custom-cut cover and partially exposed binding, documents John Bock’s 2006 action, "Maltreated Frigate"--the height as well as the culmination of this rising German artist’s performative work. Here, Bock’s vision comes to life in a multitude of color illustrations composed and collaged by the artist. The libretto, printed in its entirety, explodes in linguistic fireworks and tumbles down the printed page, solid in its earthiness and ready to be constructed into a jumble of bizarre and whimsical neologisms--vivid testimony to the artist’s zest for expression. "Maltreated Frigate" was performed as a spectacle in 10 scenes, a collision course of rock opera, Theater of the Absurd, animated sculpture and puppet show. This raucous volume invites the reader to accompany the artist and his protagonists along their tour-de-force, stream-of-consciousness action. It is a violent ride on a machine from hell, steered by an idiosyncratic inner logic.

Book Description Buchhandlung Walther Konig GmbH Co. KG. Abt. Verlag, Germany, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This sophisticated artist s book documents John Bock s action art entitled Maltreated Frigate , the final high point of his performative work. The Maltreated Frigate , which premiered in the State Opera Unter den Linden Berlin in the autumn of 2006, is a performance in 10 pictures - an artistic action between rock opera, absurd theatre, animated sculpture and puppet theatre. In an idiosyncratic universal language John Bock combines art, science and philosophy in a fragmented, self-reflective poetry which stresses the procedural. The spectacle lives on in numerous colour illustrations; the complete libretto is a linguistic firework of great whimsical word creations, testimony to the artist s pleasure of expression. The book is an invitation to follow the artist and his protagonists on a tour de force. Seller Inventory # AAC9783865602527
