Description

Artist Gillian Wearing uses photography and video to produce a portrait of the complexities of contemporary life. This book takes a look at all of her work, contextualizing it in relation to 20th-century painting, photography and video art. The text discusses with the artist her collaborative approach towards her work and its subjects, and focuses on "10-16", a video installation that charts our transition from childhood to adolescence. The full transcripts of Wearing's videos are included. The book is part of a series of studies of important artists of the late-20th century. Each title offers a comprehensive survey of the artist's work, providing analyses and multiple perspectives on contemporary art and its inspiration.
