About this Item

outstanding slipcased two book set. this sold-out deluxe set is limited to only 170 signed, numbered examples. this copy is # 91. brand new sealed condition. signed by: DAMIEN HIRST, JEFF KOONS, MATTHEW BARNEY, GERHARD MERZ AND DOUGLAS GORDON (cy twombly did not sign any of this edition) . ===================The Greek word mythos means "story" or "legend." This exhibition catalogue gathers together work by three major living artists who have very much used myth in their creative processes--and referenced it in their resulting artworks--alongside work by the greatest myth-maker of them all, the late German sculptor and performance artist, Joseph Beuys, who created a new story of origin for himself and championed the healing power of art and universal creativity. With ample illustrations, scholarly essays, biographies and bibliographies, this volume will shed new light on the work of Douglas Gordon, Matthew Barney and Cy Twombly in the context of Beuys. ================================ =====Re-Object Product Description Urinals, vacuum cleaners, basketballs, glass sheets livestock? This study of key moments in the history of ready-made and object-based art features Damien Hirst (London), Gerhard Merz (Munich), Jeff Koons (New York) and their shared historical point of reference, Marcel Duchamp (Paris and New York, 1887-1968). Recently a poll of 500 British critics called Duchamp's 1917 Fountain the most influential Modern artwork ever created. Even more recently, a man assaulted it with a hammer at the Centre Pompidou, confirming that, nearly a century later, emotions are still running high. Object-based art, which grew into a major twentieth-century trend and continues today, took its cue from the ready-made, and Re-Object explores the continuation and transformation of both lines in contemporary artistic practice, via large-format photographs and analytical essays on the artists. ============== among the authors: Damien Hirst dominated the British art scene of the 1990s. The leading figure of the YBAs (Young British Artists), he has become one of the best known British artists of the later 20th Century. Hirst has exhibited his work worldwide including at the Gagosian Gallery, New York; the Tate Gallery, London; MFA Boston; White Cube, London, and the Dallas Museum, Texas, among many others. Jeff Koons was born in York, Pennsylvania, in 1955. The former Wall Street commodities broker rose to prominence in the mid-80s and has been the subject of numerous solo museum exhibitions, such as those seen at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Bilbao Guggenheim, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Koons currently lives in New York. Eckard Schneider is the Director of the Kunsthaus Bregenz. Bookseller Inventory # 000148
