Hardcover, illustrated paper over red cloth spine with white spine titles, 23 by 30.5 cm, 184 pp., over 600 illus. New, still in the publisher’s shrinkwrap. From the publisher: “The appeal of the unconventional work of South African performance artist Robin Rhode (1976 – ,Cape Town) continues to grow following his participation in exhibitions in Europe, the United States, and Africa. Rhode has a unique way of understanding and portraying the themes of city life, culture, and everyday events of Johannesburg. This combination of drawing and performance can produce a bizarre effect, such as when he uses a crowbar in an attempt to break into the car he has drawn on a wall. The imagined space becomes reality because the artist treats it as such. In 2005, Rhode’s work was featured at the Venice Biennale and at MoMA in New York. This richly illustrated volume is the first to offer a representative cross-section of his oeuvre—including a series of works created specifically for the Haus der Kunst in Munich—and focuses on large drawings and new sculptures, as well as photo, film, and video works.”
