Author(s): Ugo Rondinone
An homage to William Burroughs' and Brion Gysin's eponymous book, this artist book of more than 300 pages is a cut-up of the artworks showcased during the group exhibition conceived by Ugo Rondinone at the Palais de Tokyo in 2007. With “The Third Mind”, Ugo Rondinone offers us a unique journey. An MRI scan of his influences, inclinations, and obsessions, this exhibition was constructed as a stroll through a brain in perpetual activity, going straight to the source of the artist's references and discoveries. Composed from the works of thirty-one artists, the exhibition and this book are the product of the meeting between Ugo Rondinone and his selections. With works by Lee Bontecou, Verne Dawson, Trisha Donnelly, Urs Fischer, Brion Gysin & William S. Burroughs, Karen Kilimnik, Sarah Lucas, Andy Warhol, and Sue Williams, among others.
