Product Description

Review

"As documented in this worthy volume's 268 color plates and definitive commentary...installations vary from stunning to silly, frightening to pleasurable, futuristic to funky, but all are mind expanding and all extend art's capacity for reflecting and influencing our lives." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Nicolas de Oliveira, Nicola Oxley and Michael Petry have between them pioneered the systematic study of Installation Art. Their first book on the subject, continuously in print since 1994, has become the key text for the earlier evolution of Installation. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for the open minded 30 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is about as complex as this review needs to be.
This is abook for anyone willing to accept that art is simply freedom of expression in any form. The most imaginative of you will be inspired by this (because there will definatly be something you've never seen before.)
Even if you're just interested in the idea of installation art, this book covers it all from every angle.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Introduction to Installation Art 5 Jan 2007
By Lau Sheow Tong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As noted by Hal Foster and Jean Baudrillard, now is the era where media used by artists have become 'non-specific' and confusing. This is the postmodern age where purity of medium is not an issue to the artist anymore. Taken over is a more adventurous and eclectic use of media involving as many sensory interactions as possible from the spectators. Thsi is what contemporary Installation is about as reflected from this book.

Concept and context of artwork are in precendence, opening more out-of-the-world possibilities in the making process of artists. It is a challenge to both artists and spectators in enabling more stimulating and shocking experiences from the work.

This book is divided into genre and theme according to aspects of 'escape', 'author and institution', 'exchange and interaction', 'time and narrative' and 'body of the audience'. All are essences of contemporary installation which is always an unexpected sensory experience with new insights.

Work of Meschac Gaba (Museum Shop, 2001), Mark Pvell (Supply and Demand, 2001) and David Bunn (I Feel Better Now, I Feel the Same Way, 1996) are life-like and realistically interesting.

Whereas, surrealistically creative and escapist are Live Forever (2001) by Lee Bul and Believe/Disbelieve by Mischa kuball.

It is definitely a book worth collecting for contemporary Installation and a great update on postmodren art-making.

Haven't read it yet, but it seems comprehensive and well informed. The photos are great and it covers the wide spectrum of installation art from its origin to its place and function in contemporary art. Covers a wide variety of artists also.
