Synopsis: An introduction to the Viennese artist's work is accompanied by an interview, commentaries, and details about his most recent assemblies and sculptures.
From the Publisher: In 1995 the Austrian Franz West transformed the terraces of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles into a glorious salon, with ranks of metal sofas draped with bright African fabrics - a new kind of public art for weary museum visitors. Drawing inspiration from the history of art, psychoanalysis, and a socially interactive type of art, West's work is at once both personal and public. This text examines the artist's work, and discusses the influence of Freud and Wittgenstein. The book features an interview with West, and a concentration on his work "Etude de couleur". This was an important signpost for the artist's oeuvre of recent times. The artist himself also contributes writings, including a sculptural text constructed like one of his sculptures. The book is part of a series of studies of important artists of the late-20th century. Each title offers a comprehensive survey of the artist's work, providing analyses and multiple perspectives on contemporary art and its inspiration.

Book Description Phaidon Press Limited, New York, 1999. Paperback. Condition: Fine. 160 pp., illus. (some col.), bib. notes; 29 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. Includes several essays on the playful Austrian artist, a sculptor who invites his audience to interact with his works. Ludic, interactive art. "In 1995 the Austrian Franz West transformed the terraces of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles into a glorious salon, with ranks of metal sofas draped with bright African fabrics: a new kind of public art for weary museum visitors. Drawing inspiration from the history of art (reclining icons such as Manetís Olympia), psychoanalysis (Freudís sofa in Westís native Vienna) and a socially interactive type of art, his work is at once both personal and public. As one of Europeís best-known sculptors, West is regularly invited to such major surveys as Skulptur Projekte in Münster and Documenta. He has gained particular recognition for incorporating the bodies of his spectators into his sculpture, producing oddly-hued forms called Passstücke (Ďadaptivesí)--plaster sculptures designed to be worn, and which contort the wearer into bizarre positions. Packed with wondeful photographs, this book is an indispensable guide to the diverse, allusive and witty structures, collages and installations of this important and prolific artist." - Publisher.
