Item description for Appearance by Luigi Ontani, Andres Serrano, Tony Oursler & Mariko Mori...

Essays by Danilo Eccher and Achille Bonito Oliva.

Mariko Mori, Yasumasa Morimura, Tony Oursler, Luigi Ontani, Pierre et Gilles, Andres Serrano, each of the artists featured in this book explores the theatrical aspects of art, creating disfigured and unsure realities that escape the rules of traditional representation. From Mori's self depiction as a futuristic space goddess to Morimura's transformation into Marilyn Monroe to Pierre et Gilles' dreamlike portraits filled with dramatic shadow and shimmering light, these works are often prop- and costume-oriented, and blend elements of camp, high fashion, and future technology into elaborate visions of a fantastic, alternate universe. Devoting individual sections to each artist with twenty photos documenting their works, this book is more in-depth than a normal exhibition catalogue, and has a jazzy, pop appeal that will attract both fashion and art fans.

Reviews - What do customers think about Appearance?

Step into the bizarre  Sep 5, 2001
APPEARANCE is essentially a catalogue of an exhibition in Bologna in 2000, an indepth survey of the works of the "bizarrists" Mariko Mori, Yasumasa Morimura, Luigi Ontani, Andres Serrano, Tony Oursler, and Pierre & Giles. Each of these interesting artists begin with photography and transform their worlds via costume, settings, art history, and a heavy dollup of kitsch. The results are variably gratifying and self serving. But at least they are always interesting! The text is in both Italian and English and is informative while not probative. A good selection to add to your fine art photography library, but chances are it will decorate your coffee table more than your reading desk...........
