Item description for Sturtevant: Push And Shove by Elaine Sturtevant...

An art-world urban legend states that someone once asked Andy Warhol about his process, to which he replied, "I don't know. Ask Elaine." True or not, one thing is sure--Elaine Sturtevant likes to fake it. Working alongside her contemporaries since the mid-1960s, the artist is best known today for her reproductions of then-radical works by Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Claus Oldenburg, Jasper Johns, Joseph Beuys, and others. Mainly absent from the art scene in the 70s, Sturtevant reemerged in the 80s, and has adhered to her rigorous conceptual strategy ever since, even re-creating Paul McCarthy's fabulously grotesque video performance, The Painter in 2002. Exploring notions of originality, replication, and simulacra, Sturtevant's work has been a meditation on as much as a provocation of such concepts, and has continued to garner attention in her 40 years of practice in the fields of art history and philosophy. Included here are images of her re-installation of Marcel Duchamp's 1,200 coal bags at New York's Perry Rubinstein Gallery--is it a Duchamp, or is it a Sturtevant?--and stills from her 1967 film, Nude Descending a Staircase. Also represented is the artist's seven-channel video installation from 2003, The Dark Threat of Absence/Fragmented and Sliced. Paperback, 8.5 x 11 in./120 pgs / 100 color.

More About Elaine Sturtevant

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Sturtevant (as she is simply known) was born in Lakewood, Ohio in 1926. She has devoted the past 40 years to appropriating works by her contemporaries, many of which have since become icons of modern art. Like no other artist before her, Sturtevant poses the question of the true value of art in the art business, and puts the terms "original" and "originality" up for debate. Her work, which includes painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, film, and video, still provokes its viewers today--both intellectually and emotionally. Sturtevant has exhibited in group and solo shows internationally, and her work is included in the collections of the ARC, Paris; MOCA, Los Angeles; the Vienna Secession; and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. She lives and works in Paris, France.
