Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mark Dion is an American artist who metamorphoses into an explorer, biochemist, detective and archaeologist. In his gallery installations around Europe and America since the 1980s, Dion has constructed the laboratories, experiments and museum caches of the great historical naturalists — following in their footsteps in his own adventurous, eco-inspired journeys to the tropics. His research and magical collections are presented in installational still lifes which combine taxidermic animals with lab equipment with artefacts, like walk-through Wunderkammers, life-sized cabinets of curiosity.

Synopsis:

In the CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS MONOGRAPHS series a study of artist Dion whose works are sited throughout the world, and often comprise walk-in installations mimicking natural history displays or film sets. They focus on contemporary environmental issues, exploring the relationship of Western art, literature and museology with the natural environment.
