Item description for Aleksandra Mir: The Concorde Collage by Aleksandra Mir...
This artist's book covers a single, hypnotic project by one of this decade's most interesting players, Alekandra Mir, whose work has recently been seen in solo projects with P.S. 1, The Wrong Gallery and Gavin Brown's Enterprise in New York and the ICA Philadelphia to name but a few. As explained in The Believer in 2004, "It's a tragically regressive time we live in. We just grounded the Concorde. Where's the future? We've lost the future I'm very jealous of an era when people were inventing something as beautiful as the Concorde and thinking, 'That's the next step.' The future isn't as optimistic as it once was, so people don't aestheticize it like they once did. It's not looked at so sanitarily, so neat and clean."
