Item description for Carsten Holler >Register< by Germano Celant & Miuccia Prada...
In an effort to make art accessible to the wider public, Carsten Holler employs strategies of direct involvement that help to abolish the barrier between the work of art and the spectator. Sculptures and installations designed for the Fondazione Prada insist on visitor interaction, and the act is reciprocated: the works change progressively due to intermittent lights which transmit vibrations to the visitor's body. A hallucinogenic subversion of individual sensibility results, one that is in line with Holler's aim of raising doubts about the certainties of contemporary lifestyles. Complete with a biography and bibliography, this catalogue is the most exhaustive documentation of Holler's challenging work to date. Essay by Germano Celant. Introduction by Miuccia Prada.
