Item description for Honore d'O: Tant Pis by Dieter Roelstraete & Honore d'O...
This story d'O is a long one. The Belgian conceptual, video, and installation artist has packed some 1000 images, along with text, into these 800 pages. The tale is enigmatic, the meanings of the varying shapes ambiguous, but like previous works of his (the sculpture Mammy made of cooking and cleansing utensils; a video of the Himalayas that showed him appearing to top a peak with toothpaste), the work is playful, humorous, lively, and interactive. Often, the images here seem to be in motion of their own accord, but if you want to watch them really move, pick up some popcorn and pop in the accompanying DVD. Essays by Dieter Roelstraete and Honor d'O. Hardcover, 6.5 x 9 in./800 pgs / 1000 color.
