Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marcel Dzama (born 1974) is one of contemporary art's hottest stars, and The Infidels is the most beautifully produced and substantial monograph on his work to date. Housed in a beige cloth cover featuring a tipped-in image, The Infidels contains fantastically sharp reproductions of paintings, drawings, film storyboards, collages and dioramas from the past two years, and installation shots from Dzama's exhibition of these works at Sies + Hoke Gallery in Dusseldorf. The book also records an increased politicization in the artist's concerns, with references to American history and current events erupting in evocations of torture, terrorism and warfare (a partial result of Dzama's relocation from Winnipeg to New York). One special highlight of The Infidels is a new series of dioramas, housed in wooden boxes and vitrines, which transports Dzama's world of knife-wielding ghouls, mutant animal men and hooded, gun-toting girls into a three-dimensional wunderkammer, with figurines made of plaster, little cages with white cubes (a homage to Duchamp's Why Not Sneeze? assemblage), inscriptions and even taxidermied mice and birds, all recruited into the enacting of historical and mythic scenarios. These magical dioramas prove that the borders of Dzama's fantasy land continue to expand and find new forms and stages for their expression.
